Orange launches HD voice trial
Orange has announced a trial of a High Definition voice service in areas between Bristol, Reading and Southampton.
HD Voice is a service intended to improve the quality of voice calls by removing background sound.
The trial has started today with a number of selected participants, including small businesses and early technology adopters, as well as mainstream users.
Customer experience will be monitored carefully and if successful it will be rolled out across the country before the end of the summer.
Everything Everywhere chief executive, Tom Alexander, said: ‘The trial of mobile HD Voice is a significant milestone in the new company’s goal of delivering the best service in the industry. HD Voice represents a huge advance for the customer experience, a great leap forward for the mobile industry and we’re delighted to be at the forefront in bringing this innovation to the UK public.’
