“Wi-Fi Talk is an innovative solution to help customers stay connected easily if mobile coverage is limited indoors, whether at home, in the office, or even in places such as shopping centres,” Optus executive Amanda Hutton said.

The calling charges will be included in the subscriber’s mobile bill or in case deducted from their prepaid balance.
