KPN introduces VoWiFi

2 Nov 2018

The Netherlands’ KPN has launched voice-over-Wi-Fi (VoWiFi) – also supporting texting over Wi-Fi – initially for Samsung and Apple iPhone devices. The operator’s website admits that – although its cellular network covers 99% of the population – there are still plenty of spots where indoor mobile signal is weak and that it is convenient to switch to a Wi-Fi network e.g. in a user’s home or workplace. When attempting to make a VoLTE call where KPN’s 4G network coverage is insufficient/absent, a compatible device with VoWiFi activated will automatically switch to Wi-Fi.
