Airtel WiFi calling now works on other broadbands, more cities, and new devices

0

Last week, Bharti Airtel, India’s one of the largest telcos rolled out WiFi calling service in Delhi NCR region. But the service debuted with a catch as it only worked on Airtel broadband connections and the number of supported devices is still less. However, just after a week of its initial public rollout, the carrier seems to have started testing the service in a number of other metropolitan cities across the country. Interestingly, some of the users even noted WiFi calling to work on other broadbands and officially the telco now supports six more devices.

Bharti Airtel is one of the oldest and largest telecom operators in India. Though it is going through hard times, the carrier became the first in the country to roll out WiFi calling service. During the announcement last week, the telco said it will only work on Airtel broadband connections but to everyone’s surprise, some user found it to be working on broadband by other ISPs like BSNL. Additionally, the service is now being tested in cities like Mumbai, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Hyderabad according to users from those regions.

Airtel WiFi calling service supported only 24 devices at launch and now the telco has added 6 more devices, increasing the total number of supported devices to 30. And the best part is users do not need to buy a new SIM or subscribe to new plan to use the WiFi calling feature. It is a free service which will work on all the supported devices without any additional charges
