Vi (formerly Vodafone Idea) yesterday silently joined the league of Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel kickstarting its VoWiFi calling service in select telecom circles across the country. Vi has joined the league quite late with Reliance Jio and Bharti Airtel offering VoWiFi calling service across the country for quite some time now.
Vi has launched VoWiFi calling service initially in Kolkata and Maharashtra & Goa telecom circles since yesterday. The newly introduced service for the time being is limited to prepaid customers only with postpaid customers ineligible for the same currently.
The company is said to be working on improving the availability of its VoWiFi calling service asking customers to remain tuned to its social media pages for further updates. Vi WiFi calling service is likely to be expanded to postpaid customers at a later point in time.
“VoWiFi is active from today only in Maharashtra, Goa, and Kolkata Circle with prepaid customers. Currently, we do not have VoWiFi in your location. We are working on it.
