While there’s no denying there are plenty of annoying things in life – screaming kids, noisy neighbours, hour-long lines for Santa photos – almost nothing is quite as maddening as going to make a call and finding you’re in a mobile black spot. Many of us even find them in our own homes and businesses.

Caused by a number of environmental factors (e.g. terrain, building construction or geography), mobile black spots, although frustrating, can be remedied.

And Telstra is working overtime to make this happen with their Wi-Fi calling technology.

Wi-Fi calling is all about making mobile voice calls accessible in places even the best mobile network can’t reach.

“It is important we keep investing in developing new technology like Wi-Fi calling.”
