After a long time, it seems as if Vodafone Idea (Vi) finally heard its customers. Many users had complained that Vi was not focusing on Southern India for Wi-Fi calling. VoWi-Fi or Voice Over Wi-Fi calling service is essential for many customers who live in areas with poor coverage or poor network signal. With Wi-Fi calling, customers can make crystal clear calls even when the mobile network connectivity is not too strong. The third-largest telecom operator has expanded the Wi-Fi calling service for customers in Kerala and Karnataka.
The highlight of the Wi-Fi calling service is that it doesn't cost anything extra to the consumer. Of course, you will have to pay for the Wi-Fi network that you are connecting your smartphone to, but you won't have to pay the telco anything extra. Note that you must have an active plan with a calling benefit to be able to leverage Wi-Fi calling for a better voice call experience.
