So, you enjoy fast internet speeds at home. But is your mobile signal reliable indoors?
This scenario happens to me a lot since the lockdowns started: I would be too complacent about my connection because of our (mostly) stable WiFi, but when it’s time to get out and claim my budol and food orders, calls with riders go haywire, and then I realize – “oo nga pala, mobile call pala ‘to.” (Oh yeah, this is a voice call.)
Most of us now attend to almost all of our needs and professional dealings at home that sometimes – well, often – we could only wish for our mobile signals to keep up with the demand. And they can.
Christmas just came early for Globe postpaid subscribers because you can now enjoy the revolutionary VoWiFi technology for free on your respective handsets! Begone, indoor call uncertainties.
VoWiFi stands for “voice over WiFi,” and is a feature that lets you make and take voice calls over a WiFi network. Now, there’s no need to fret or find a “good” spot when taking a call indoors since the technology will simply tap into your home WiFi or broadband connection, rather than the usual 2G or 3G signals. You can also call it “WiFi calling.”
This does not only mean getting a clear, HD-quality sound – choppy? not anymore – but also faster and more optimized call set-ups, which can be shortened by one to five seconds.
Activate and use it for free
VoWiFi is completely free of charge! If you’re already a postpaid user who’s using an LTE SIM and a VoWiFi-capable device, you can request a “VoLTE” activation through the GlobeOne app. This feature is available in select areas for now.
When you’re all set, a simple swipe is enough to enjoy its capabilities right away – whether you’re using an Apple, Samsung, or Huawei handset. Just follow these steps:
- Open “Settings.”
- Choose “Cellular.”
- Set “WiFi Calling” to “On.”
- Swipe down on the “Quick Settings” panel.
- Tap the “WiFi Calling” icon.
- Open “Settings.”
- Go to “Mobile Network” > “Mobile Data.”
Boost your mobile plan too
Sounds good? If you’re already a Globe postpaid user, this is a great time to stay and enjoy your plan’s ever-expanding perks. If you aren’t, don’t miss out on this breakthrough by considering your own postpaid plan.
Nothing beats the peace of mind of being able to connect seamlessly with loved ones – especially when you can contact them immediately and safely inside your home through uninterrupted calls.
