Telenor tests Wi-Fi Calling in Denmark

23 Jun 2016

Danish telecoms provider Telenor has embarked on a trial of Wi-Fi Calling, which bypasses the cellular network and uses the Wi-Fi connection for voice calls and SMS messages. The cellco claims that the technology will be particularly beneficial to subscribers currently experiencing indoor coverage issues. During the pilot period, Wi-Fi Calling will be available to users using the Apple iPhone 6, 6 Plus, 6S and 6S Plus handsets, with more compatible devices to follow. Telenor’s network director Peter Ditlev Nodbak said: ‘We are close to having the technology ready, although there are many different factors that can affect the use and experience of Wi-Fi Calling. Therefore, we are now testing the technology among our customers, so we can gain experience before the actual launch later this year.’ Telenor also said that it now covers 94% of all Danish households with LTE and is continuously expanding its 4G coverage.
