The end of poor signal with EE WiFi calling service
08 April, 2015 | Mobile / Apps
EE has announced the launch of their new WiFi Calling service which will be available from the 10th April. The service will be debuting on the Samsung Galaxy S6, S6 Edge and Microsoft Lumia.
The WiFi Calling service will be aimed at those customers who have poor signal in their homes, as well as those with poor call quality.
This service will eliminate those problems by using your WiFi connection, which will allow you to send texts, make and receive calls all through your homes internet connection. This type of feature works very well with iPhone iMessage users and applies the same principles which would allow users to stay connected as long as there is a WiFi connection.
Several other networks and apps like Three, Whatapp, Facebook and O2 also offer this type of service; however they do require a separate app for it to work.
EE’s solution is built-in to the device itself (just like Apple’s iMessage), which makes WiFi Calling automatically enable the moment you connect to a WiFi source.
This gives the users a seamless experience as they don’t have to use their devices any differently. You still would use the same dialler and text function you do now, without having to open up separate apps or taking extra steps.
This service will be great for those people who have poor signal in and around their homes.
At this time there is no list of the devices that will support this WiFi Calling service, however EE have stated that this service will be available for all new customers on the iPhone 5S, iPhone 5C, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus within the next few weeks and all existing customers on those devices can expect the WiFi Calling service to be enabled within the next few months.
They also stated that they are planning to bring the service to more than 5 million customers by summer 2015.
