I became a HughesNet customer three days ago. I have NO Sprint WiFi calling service! I cant even call someone standing 3ft away from me. This was not an issue with our previous provider and I was not definately told that I would not be able to make cell phone calls anymore, when I signed up. I need this issue addressed immediately. Oh yes, I would call, but I cant!
I did not realize I had to mention this, I am not a technical person. There is a lag when I call someone standing next to me, but when calling someone in another city or state, it does not work at all.
Actually, when standing in same room and both devices using the satellite it is going through the satellite using the WiFi connection. Just a much shorter path than going out to the internet when calling someone not using the HughesNet satellite connection.
Satellite internet will not improve your cell phone coverage.
Welcome and thanks for posting. I'm glad to see BirdDog has already addressed your concerns with trying to use WiFi calling. As he mentioned, we do have HughesNet Voice which is a phone service that is optimized to work with your HughesNet internet.
