From this May 23rd onward, mobile carrier AT&T is all set to roll out High Definition (HD) Voice on an all-IP, Voice Over LTE (VoLTE) network in select markets. In layman’s terms, if you happen to be a mobile subscriber to AT&T, you no longer have to be in two minds as to whether to make a choice between faster data speeds and crystal clear conversations. With HD Voice, customers will be able to carry on with their conversations, all the while surfing at 4G LTE speeds.
Talk about having the best of both worlds! HD Voice from AT&T will be enabled on the Samsung Galaxy S4 mini, which is a smartphone that has been touted to deliver superior software features from the Galaxy S4 albeit in a far smaller form factor, and there will be additional devices that support HD Voice in due time.
Right at the start, HD Voice from AT&T will be made available in select areas in Illinois, Indiana, Minnesota and Wisconsin, and one can expect this to continue to expand on a market-by-market basis. It would be interesting to see just how much happier users are with HD Voice capability when the service becomes widespread. [Press Release]
