Airtel last week announced that it is expanding WiFi calling feature to four more circles.

The Sunil Mittal-led company beat Reliance Jio to become the first telecom service provider to offer Voice over WiFi to its subscribers in the country. On its website, the company claims Airtel WiFi Calling is available nationally across all circles (except J&K and NESA). While it was initially limited to Airtel Broadband, it has now been expanded to support all broadband providers.
