The Chief General Manager (CGM) said that Wings is the company’s first internet telephony service in India.

With the Wings Internet telephony services, users can make and receive calls using broadband, Wi-Fi, 4G, or 3G internet; video calling is only supported for Wings to Wings calls, said Mathai.
