AT&T kicks off Wi-Fi calling years after T-Mobile

Matt Hamblen | Oct. 9, 2015
Complains to FCC that Sprint and T-Mobile didn't get needed waivers.

Entner said there is not any technology reason for AT&T to restrict Wi-Fi calling to the U.S., Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. For business travelers trying to lower costs when abroad, calls made on Wi-Fi can sidestep international calling rates of 20 cents to $1 a minute, he said.

"Again, maybe AT&T is being careful on [geographic coverage] for a legal reason," he said.

AT&T said the iPhone 6S, iPhone 6S Plus, iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus will support Wi-Fi Calling if they have iOS 9 installed.
