Vodafone customers will soon be able to make and receive phone calls even in areas with poor and no signal after the network confirmed plans to introduce WiFi Calling.
The feature ensures users are always in touch by automatically switching to a nearby WiFi network whenever the mobile signal is low and is available to at no extra cost to pay month and Red Bundle customers with a compatible handset.
Vodafone UK Consumer Director Cindy Rose said: “Our WiFi calling service allows customers to talk to loved ones, friends and colleagues for longer and in many more places. It is easy to use and doesn’t cost a penny more.”
The network has also renewed its deal to bundle TV and film streaming service Netflix with its tariffs.
Customers taking Vodafone Red Value, SIM Only or Red + Sharer Bundles can stream TV shows and movies instantly as part of the Netflix two screen plan worth £7.49 per month.
Rose commented: “Thanks to our partnership with Netflix and our strong and ever-expanding 4G network, our customers can be out and about and still catch-up with their favourite films or TV shows.”
