Following other UK-based carriers like Three and EE, Vodafone has finally launched the HD Voice service across its UK network, allowing those with compatible handset to make better quality calls when on the Vodafone 3G network.
Sometimes known as wideband audio, the service will allow those who have the wideband codecs to automatically switch to a higher quality call when connected to Vodaphone’s network.
According to Vodafone this is all part of a £1 billion network and services upgrade plan.
The problem is that HD Voice has been around for some time now, so Vodafone is a little late, in fact HD Voice has been in the since 2010 when it was launched on the Orange, T-Mobile and Three networks (this of course includes EE too).
Those who are a 3G or 4G customer should start to get support for the service, and those who are on 4G should auto switch to 3G when placing calls.
The service will also cost users nothing, so all in all it’s a plus, just a late plus.
