The Indian telecom industry has seen exponential growth in the past few years, thanks to the wide range of inexpensive calling plans and 4G internet. But that doesn't mean operators like Airtel will stop there.

December

Last December, Airtel became the first Indian telecom operator to truly bring a solution to indoor connectivity problems. The company launched its Airtel Wi-Fi Calling service to allow all its subscribers to enjoy better call connection by leveraging the available Wi-Fi network. All you need is a 4G-enabled smartphone and a Wi-Fi connection. Before we dive into the details, let's understand the new feature.

The latest feature will enable Airtel subscribers to make or receive calls using a wireless internet connection instead of the regular network. If a user has a good Wi-Fi network, calls can get through even when the mobile network reception is weak. Not only is Airtel the first in the country to provide this service but also the one with a userbase of 3 million in just two months. This move by Airtel has placed it way above its competition and the company expects the new technology to scale up to 10 million by the end of this year.

There's much more to the new tech than aiding call drops. Airtel Wi-Fi Calling will serve as a great tool to decongest typical cellular networks in densely populated areas. Besides, Airtel is offering the new service for free and users can continue using the service on their current mobile plans.

Another advantage of Airtel Wi-Fi calling is the luxury to make HD calls even from remote areas that lack HD or VoLTE voice facilities. So, make sure you have a compatible smartphone and an Airtel SIM and you are good to go.
