5G Offloading On Roam Network

The seamless and widespread WiFi coverage provided by Roam’s decentralized OpenRoaming network allows cellular users to offload tasks to WiFi, reducing costs and ensuring continuous service. This functionality mirrors what already occurs in homes with a WiFi connection, where support for cell phone calls is automatically shifted, or 'offloaded,' from 5G to WiFi networks.

However, many WiFi networks outside of the home do not offer automatic reconnections and are password-protected, limiting their ability to provide 5G offloading services. In contrast, the widespread and automatic connections facilitated by Roam’s routers enable continuous WiFi support, allowing devices to consistently utilize WiFi alongside 5G, thus enhancing cellular user experiences.

Cellular users can save on 5G data costs by offloading cellphone tasks to WiFi. This feature is particularly convenient for travelers, as cellular roaming and data costs tend to be high, while WiFi roaming on the Roam Network is free. Overall, Roam’s passwordless WiFi OpenRoaming network enables users to rely less on cellular roaming for cost savings and an enhanced network experience.
