O2's Wifi & 4G Calling Replaces the TU Go App
In March this year O2’s Wifi & 4G Calling service was launched. As Wifi & 4G Calling is now available on a wider range of mobile devices and has been rolled out nationwide, O2 made the decision to close the TU Go service on Thursday 30th November 2017.
Although the TU Go app also enables you to make calls over a Wifi connection, the Wifi and 4G Calling services don’t require you to install an app or create an account. They also deliver crystal clear HD voice calls, filtering out background noise, making it easier to hear and be heard. The services cost no extra to set-up and will be billed as voice calls in exactly the same way as 2G and 3G services are. Minutes will simply come out of your bundle and out-of-tariff calls are charged at your standard rate.
Wifi Calling allows you to make and receive calls using any Wifi data connection, which is great if you’re in an area with no mobile coverage. 4G Calling allows you to make and receive calls over the O2 4G data network, rather than having to fall back on 2G or 3G services. Because of the seamless handover between 4G and Wifi (and vice versa), you can walk from an indoor area with Wifi coverage such as your office to an outdoor area where you can pick up 4G, continuing your call without drop out.
