KPN to pilot HD Voice in the Netherlands

Tuesday 31 January 2012 | 09:23 CET | News
KPN has started a trial to test HD Voice, which puts attention on mobile calling, offering a sound as realist as possible. If the pilot is successful, KPN will deploy HD Voice on its entire UMTS/3G network. HD Voice can make conversations sound more life-like, with the callers feeling like they are closer to each other, KPN said. Both people on the phone will have to have an HD Voice compatible phone to take advantage of the improved sound quality, as well as place their calls over KPN's 3G network. KPN said that at the moment, around 20 percent of mobile phones are compatible with HD Voice.
