Verizon asks for permission to offer WiFi calling

Verizon To Purchase AOL For 4.4 Billion

Earlier this month, AT&T applied to the FCC for permission to offer native WiFi calling and now just a few weeks later, Verizon is following suit. The network has delivered a request to Tom Wheeler and his crew in the hope that it will be allowed to offer the feature to its users. If regulators give an official thumbs-up, we wouldn’t be surprised if the first crop of iOS 9-toting iPhone users don’t get the offering pretty quickly. After all, AT&T contacted the FCC on October 6th and started rolling it out to customers on October 8th.
