Eir offers free Wi-Fi calling service that enables users to make and receive calls and texts over Wi-Fi even without a cellular signal. 144,00 Eir and Meteor customers can enjoy the free service starting May 17.
The service enables customers to tap into a mobile signal by using any Wi-Fi connection or public hotspot without extra cost. This could be a solution for mobile users roaming overseas as well as for those working in buildings where mobile network coverage is poor.
Sinead Morrissey, head of mobile product at Eir, said: “Our Wi-Fi Calling service is a progressive leap forward in our ambition to bring seamless connectivity to our customers – and a trailblazing moment for Eir as the first operator in Ireland to introduce the service,”
“This service brings a greatly improved customer experience, enabling the peace of mind to make calls from wherever it suits. Eir has invested substantially in our network and today, our customers can reap the positive benefits of the strength of our network.”
