Globe: Activate VoWiFi/VoLTE for better mobile experience
Poor signal penetration can be caused by thick or dense building materials like metal, concrete, brick, and solid wood, as well as physical obstacles such as trees, mountains, and other buildings. The distance between the mobile device and the nearest network tower is also a significant factor. VoWiFi helps resolve connectivity concerns by tapping any existing WiFi connection to make a call. Since it uses WiFi, mobile calls and text messaging can be done even in enclosed spaces as long as there is stable internet service. Experience and charging are the same as a regular voice call. Apart from improving audio and video quality, VoWiFi optimizes call set-up. Set-up times can be shorter by one to five seconds, providing a faster connection. VoWiFi complements VoLTE, a technology that allows voice calls over the LTE network, rather than the 2G and 3G networks that are normally used. It lets customers simultaneously connect to the internet while calling, resulting in an uninterrupted streaming and gaming experience. “We want to provide our customers with many different solutions to address their connectivity challenges like making clearer calls and having better connection inside their homes. The switch to VoWiFi eliminates coverage problems, so if the mobile signal is weak in a room, they no longer have to sit by the window or go outside the house to make a quick call. Just connect to any home WiFi network through VoWiFi, and be able to make high-quality regular calls in no time,” said Darius Delgado, Globe Consumer Mobile Business Head.
