Batelco Delivers Superior Calls with Voice over WiFi

Batelco, Bahrain’s leading digital solutions provider is very pleased to announce the launch of Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) across the Kingdom, the first service of its kind, as it strives to enrich the voice experience for its customers. In the latest evolution of its network advancement to support voice services, Batelco is delivering the technology to provide customers with the very best mobile experience available today. The voice over WiFi service is delivered in line with Batelco’s pioneering role in leading innovation and transformation for Telecom services in the Kingdom of Bahrain.

This new introduction follows on from the successful launch earlier this year of Voice over LTE (VoLTE), with Batelco being the first to launch the service in the Kingdom of Bahrain. VoWiFi taps into any WiFi connection the customer may have, be it at home, the office or out and about in public WiFi enabled areas. Calls will seamlessly and automatically be switched between VoLTE and VoWiFi to ensure a superior customer experience.

Similar to VoLTE, the new Voice over WiFi service will deliver faster call setup and superior high-quality (HD) voice calls. The service is currently applicable to iPhone 6 or later models with customers required to update their phone to the latest iOS software to enjoy the service. Locally, VoWiFi does not cost any extra; the service consumes from the customer’s selected package minutes allowance, with any additional calls charged at the standard rates.

This latest innovative delivery from Batelco is in line with the Company’s goals to deploy the latest technologies to maintain Bahrain’s strong reputation for delivering world-class communications solutions and to guarantee the best customer experience. A converged network infrastructure allows Batelco to maximise its network capabilities and speed up the deployment of more new innovative services for its customers.
