The invention of internet has so far brought so many developments thus making certain services to be accessible. One such service is Wi-Fi calling which will be available on one of South Africa’s mobile network provider Cell C.
On 13 May, the network provider’s top management said Cell C said will launch Wi-Fi calling by the end of July 2015.
The development will enable subscribers to make voice calls over their home data network, and also while travelling overseas without incurring roaming charges.
Cell C said Wi-Fi calling is by now available on a number of smartphones and it just needs to finalise the last few details before launching the service.
Wi-Fi calling came back into the spotlight when the latest version of Apple’s mobile operating system, iOS 8, was set to support the feature.
In the United States, Wi-Fi calling has been available to Android users on T-Mobile for some time.
Services such as Skype, Google Hangouts, and Viber also offer the ability to make calls over a data network at lower prices than roaming offers.
These services require users to sign up for an account, though, as well as recharge a separate account with airtime.
