Elisa brings in Wi-Fi calling

Thursday 29 September 2016 | 12:57 CET | News
Elisa said it is the first operator in Finland to provide Wi-Fi calling on a commercial basis.

Initially, the service is available on the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge phones, which are compliant. Later, Wi-Fi calls will be made available to most phone models.
