Problems using cell phones over WiFi

I have an android phone capable of making  calls using WiFi when no cell service is available. I have Hughes net Gen 5 and when I make calls I can hear the person on the other end very clearly, but they get a lot of break-up on their end and can't understand most of the conversation. Could this be a problem with Hughes net and if so is there a remedy?

Hello Rebyroo, cell over WiFi generally will not work well on satellite due to the high latency (ping). There is no remedy for the latency because the satellite is so far up in space.

Re: Problems using cell phones over WiFi

Thank you for the answer.  I suspected as much and it is truly disappointing since we have such spotty cell service here.  We are also experiencing problems using Skype. Same kind of issue.
