AT&T to Wait Until 2015 to Launch WiFi Calling

AT&T's top exec today said the company won't offer WiFi calling on its devices until next year. WiFi Calling has been around for years, but was highlighted by Apple this week as a new feature in the iPhone 6/6 Plus. Further, T-Mobile announced this week plans to expand WiFi calling to all its smartphones with a new in-home hotspot. T-Mobile's WiFi service goes live soon, but AT&T is in no rush to compete. "We're very focused on making sure it's a great experience for customers, but we see it as a complement, not a replacement," said CEO Ralph de la Vega. "We feel good about a great nationwide network with unlimited talk and text." WiFi calling passes voice calls and text messages over a local WiFi network rather than the macro cellular network.

Even though I get great service where I live already with cellular, I choose to use WiFi calling instead for the battery saving advantages, and to insure that I always have a rock solid connection.
So instead of connecting to a tower blocks away, with large buildings in the way, my tower essentially is just a few feet away from me at all times, with no obstructions in the way.
Why AT&T and Verizon are choosing to drag their feet with this is beyond me.

From a bloodsucking leech perspective, there's not much to be gained from offering wifi calling. They know exactly how much money they will make in that year or three by delaying wifi calling.
Most of their customers wont leave ...
at&t's 'spin' is correct here
As far as it goes, I think this is exactly the correct spin for at&t to adopt.....we're not going to focus on filling in the gaps, we are going to focus on making sure that there are no gaps to fill in.
Lets all not forget that T-Mobile still has a huge FOR SALE sign on their door a...
