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.”

Basically, Telstra customers who have a compatible handset* can now make and receive mobile calls wherever there is an accessible Wi-Fi connection, including over home Wi-Fi and at almost one million Telstra Air hotspots across the country. You’ll also be able to seamlessly transfer calls between Telstra’s 4G network and Wi-Fi on your handset… Even while the call is in progress!
So, as long as you’re a Telstra customer, worry not about those pesky mobile black spots because, chances are, whether you’re at home or out in public, Wi-Fi Calling is the answer to your prayers!
