AT&T recently petitioned the FCC to approve a WiFi calling service with the carrier, a service both T-Mobile and Sprint both offer, and the FCC was quick to approve it. It seems Verizon is hoping for the same outcome, as it has petitioned the FCC to approve its own service.
Though Verizon offers a sort of WiFi calling, it’s tied to a Verizon app instead of integrated into the operating system. AT&T finally offers WiFi calling (though only for iPhone users) at the system level, and hopefully Verizon will be able to do the same for Android.
While we don’t know the details of Verizon’s plan for the WiFi calling service, it can only be good for customers to have the option. Would you find this service useful? Leave a comment!
