VODAFONE WI-FI CALLING TO LAUNCH ON SAMSUNG DEVICES
Vodafone UK today announced that its Wi-Fi Calling service will be coming this autumn to customers using the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. From today, customers can also register their interest in the service at http://www.vodafone.co.uk/shop/coming-soon/register/index.htm to receive further updates.
Vodafone’s nationwide Wi-Fi Calling enables customers to make and take calls in many more places – whether in a home with thick walls, in a basement or on the London Underground. If connected to Wi-Fi, customers can talk on their phone even if there is no mobile signal.
The introduction of Wi-Fi Calling follows the rollout of Vodafone’s nationwide provision of HD (High Definition) Voice technology, the roll-out of 4G+ (Carrier Aggregation) and the Vodafone Rural Open Sure Signal programme aimed at giving 100 remote communities mobile coverage for the first time.
In addition, Vodafone UK’s £2 billion investment programme during 2014 and 2015 is focussed on bringing stronger indoor and outdoor network coverage, and mobile internet access to more communities and businesses. This has already seen 4G extended to 648 cities, towns and districts as well as thousands of smaller communities across the UK.
