It does look as though Sprint will finally introduce their HD Voice service across the spectrum of its network over here in the U.S., which is a sliver of good news who have been watching the situation closely considering how it is now a couple of years after Sprint first set their sights on this particular feature. Just what kind of benefits will HD Voice bring to the table? For starters, HD Voice is able to increase the dynamic range of the audio that has been transmitted over the network from the standard four octaves all the way to seven.
Do take into consideration that HD Voice should not be looked at as a game changer in any way, since Orange already rolled out HD Voice in the UK more than four years ago, and since then, there has been a fair number of mobile carriers worldwide who have made this particular feature available to the masses already.
Despite that, Sprint’s rival, AT&T, also did announce HD Voice earlier this year to boot, while T-Mobile was the first U.S. carrier to do so, so it is nice to see Sprint play catch up with the rest of the market. Sprint did test out HD Voice in certain covered areas, so there are folks out there who have been enjoying HD Voice for quite some time already, and we do look forward to a mass rollout that is happening later this July.
