Sprint announced plans to expand its HD Voice service today at an event in New York City. The carrier said that it will provide HD voice options to consumers across the entire United States by the middle of this year, and that blanket coverage should enable 20 million of Sprint’s existing subscribers to take advantage of the service, which is already live in several markets.
Sprint promises that HD Voice, which is available on T-Mobile also, allows for much clearer phone calls. “It provides a fuller, more natural-sounding voice, plus noise-canceling technology that virtually eliminates background noise from places like a busy road or crowded restaurant,” the company said in a statement. The firm also highlighted that some existing handsets, like the HTC One Max, will receive Wi-Fi calling support soon.
Sprint HD Voice is already supported on more than 24 Sprint smartphones, which means you’ll be able to take advantage of the service once the carrier flips the switch in your market.
