Kuwait, Kuwait City: In today’s digital world, Wi-Fi networks have become an integral part of communications nowadays, providing better internet coverage in places where mobile networks are not to reach due to constraints. Hence, the importance of “VoWiFi” service for voice calls which are sent through an encrypted secured data "tunnel" and eventually merges with the mobile network to provide mobile users a better call experience.

Ooredoo Business, the trusted technology partner for business solutions, announced its support to the Voice over Wi-Fi (VoWiFi), a free service for all Ooredoo Kuwait customers with prepaid and postpaid voice plans, enabling them to make calls over a Wi-Fi connection and send short text messages.

VoWiFi will help solving weak smartphone signals and dropped calls in areas with poor coverage, such as high-rise residential buildings, basements, offices and remote branches. Once the smartphone picks up a reliable and secure Wi-Fi network, the call will be transferred between the phone network and the Wi-Fi network automatically smoothly and without any interruption of the call. In short, customers can use VoWiFi to make voice and video calls in any location that has a Wi-Fi network, even when there is no mobile network reception.

The service is available without any additional fees, while voice and internet calls will be charged according to the package, and without the need to download any application.

On the business level, and with changing work styles due to COVID-19 pandemic, the VoWiFi service plays an effective role in helping companies in improving the business continuity and productivity in a cost-effective manner, as most employees work remotely and from their homes depending on the Internet, voice calls and video calls.

Ooredoo Business expressed its pride in supporting the VoWiFi that is uniquely designed to improve the calling experience and the future of communication in the today’s digital world, stressing that it is a distinctive technology that makes the efficiency of conversation voice better. 

Ooredoo also clarified that currently, the VoWiFi service is available on its network on Huawei 1 Plus devices and Huawei handsets, however, the service will be soon available on other devices.
