FreedomPop announced its new Premium Voice technology designed for handoffs between VoIP and traditional cellular voice calls.

The new feature will be available through an OTT software update to all new and existing FreedomPop customers. The MVNO says it will work regardless of device type.

New customers will get Premium Voice automatically and existing customers will have to grab the update from the Google Play store. A FreedomPop spokesperson said the update will be available for iOS at some point once Apple approves the app.

The Premium Voice announcement fits in with FreedomPop's new add-on offering unlimited access to more than 10 million Wi-Fi hotspots nationwide for $5 per month.

FreedomPop runs on Sprint’s network and the MVNO’s move to provide more seamless coverage comes as Sprint just announced it is expanding Wi-Fi calling to iPhone customers.
