    Bad WiFi Calling Quality

    Has anyone else noticed lower AT&T WiFi calling quality since all this coronavirus stuff has had more people working from home?
    I know there was a report saying AT&T’s WiFi calling was up 76%.
    Have to disconnect from WiFi if I want to have a good sounding call with no drop outs or quality fades.

    Who is your home ISP that your Wi-Fi router is connected to?
    “The Internet wasn’t meant to be metered in bits and bytes, so it’s insane that wireless companies are still making you buy it this way. The rate plan is dead — it’s a fossil from a time when wireless was metered by every call or text.” John Legere 1/5/2017

    Xfinity/Comcast.
    WiFi performance hasn’t changed at all for me since this happened. Still getting the same latency and speeds as before.

    If you’re getting good quality voice without WiFi, why enable WiFi calling?

    Nice to see you checked that—I've noticed that mine has gotten bad (lines on AT&T, Cricket, and a work VoIP softphone) at times, but it's also coincided with my Comcast connection running at about 1/3 the speed it normally does for both uploads and downloads and latency at significantly higher rates. I've done plenty of network troubleshooting, but it's totally a during-the-day issue and was much worse last week (not sure if Comcast has been adjusting things due to extra use overall).

    It may be worth trying without Wi-Fi calling for the time being and checking in every now and then at least until some things settle down.

    Noticed the same thing on my parents M-Cell. That said I can't confirm the DSL isn't terribly overloaded but I'll check remotely one of these days. Thank god for At&t LTE unlimited and routers.

    It's very mountainous around here so there's many places where WiFi Calling is needed so I've always had it on so I can fall back on it without having to think about it. Especially since leaving the house it just transitions to VoLTE. But it may be a good idea to temporarily disable it.

    Well at least I know now it's not just me and some bug I'm experiencing.
    Thanks for the feedback!
