Canadian carriers Rogers and Fido are now offering HD Voice. In simple terms it means better call quality, as the name suggests. In an email to Mobile Syrup Rogers explained,
“Rogers Network is capable of supporting HD Voice for devices that are HD voice compliant. Customers with handsets that support HD voice will experience clearer call quality and enhanced suppression of background noise. This feature is only available between two 3G/4G handsets on our network that are both HD voice compliant.”
The full list of HD Voice compliant devices is as follows:
Korea’s SK Telecom was the first carrier to launch HD Voice, but it has already, or is set to roll out on various other carriers around the world in the coming months. Bell, Telus and Virgin are all offering HD Voice to the Canadian market already.
