Country's major telecom operators, Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio, recently launched their respective free Wi-Fi calling services, which will enable their customers to switch to voice over Wi-Fi inside their homes/offices.
The service, known as Voice Over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) service, has become active for both Airtel and Jio subscribers. Moreover, both the telcos have made the service available all across India and can be accessed over any Broadband connection, anywhere. This is a recent development as Airtel earlier provided Wi-Fi calling exclusively on Airtel’s Xstream Fiber broadband service, however, Airtel last week, expanded the service to any home or public Wi-Fi network to take on its rival Jio.
The services provided by both the telecom operators is somewhat similar. Both are offering the service free of cost for domestic calls and to avail the calling features, customers do not need any additional calling app or SIM.
