Posted by · 6632 views · Translate

The FCC has granted Verizon a waiver that will allow it to launch Wi-Fi Calling the United States.

By this Order, the Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau, the Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau, the Wireless Telecommunications Bureau, and the Wireline Competition Bureau (Bureaus) of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC or Commission) grant Verizon a temporary, limited waiver of the Commission’s requirements to support text telephony (TTY) technology on wireless networks to the extent that they use Internet Protocol (IP) technologies. This waiver expires December 31, 2017, or upon the effective date of Commission rules providing for alternative IP-based wireless accessibility solutions, whichever is earlier.

Verizon has not announced when it plans to enable able Wi-Fi Calling; however, AT&T enabled the feature days after receiving its waiver.

This makes me laugh, the blood suckers copying everything t-mobile does now. Well that's competition for you.

Did you also know that Verizon makes their activation simpler but with a $20 fee?
