VoIP service providers like Viber, Xoom and Zoom will be available to American consumers via AT&T, T-Mobile and Sprint, respectively, on April 9, Verizon announced today.
VoIP is a communications technology that allows customers to communicate through a wireless device over a network.
It’s also available over Internet-based platforms such as Google Voice and Skype.
AT&Ts new plan, for example, will give consumers unlimited free calls to the United States.
In a statement, AT&ts CFO David McWilliams said that AT&t has been committed to providing VoIP customers with the best possible quality of service for many years.
“We continue to see great interest in the VoIP industry, and we’re excited to expand our offering to include more VoIP-based services, as we continue to expand and invest in our network and infrastructure,” McWilliams added.
T-Mo also announced today that it would be offering VoIP on its T-mobile, Sprint and Verizon Next plans starting April 9.
The carrier also added that it is adding additional VoIP and video streaming services to its TMO and U-verse prepaid services.
In addition, Tmo will be offering its new VoIP plan to customers who are eligible for an AT&TC Free Voice Offer.
TMO will also be offering a new video calling feature that lets customers make video calls to others through a VoIP video app, the carrier announced.
The new TMO VoIP will be compatible with the U-Verse, TMO Ultra and TMO Xoom plans.
Verizon said it will also offer Voip-based video calling features to customers.

AT &t is the only U.
