What determines whether a handset will call in HD: any random phone that has HD enabled, or does the Vodafone network decide only these "..." handsets can?

E.G. if I pull out the Nokia N8, which I believe is HD capable and de-branded so shouldn't have HD locked out, will this work in HD even though it may not be on Vodafone's HD list?





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster and even more now as they are upgrading their rural Conklins. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend $195 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?

freitasm: The video is a bit of an exaggeration... I never heard static in digital calls. Background noise and breaking up because of bad coverage, yes, but static? Nope. 

They must have made the non-HD call on Telecom's AMPS network :)


Actually calls on the old AMPS network were way better than GSM in it's day..

AMR-WB (G.722.2) and G.722 are both very different.

99% of links between telcos in NZ are still TDM/SS7 based so interoperability isn't going to exist. Even in the future there is no guarantee of this occurring for a long time as it requires transcoding which means resources have to go into this.

so if Telecom supports HD voice at some point, it will likely still be only internal to each network  i.e. no VF-Telecom  or Telecom-VF HD voice?

Called a colleague with iPhone 5 and heard HD voice for the first time. Man, so clear it was kinda freaky.

I'd call JohnR but I don't know his number ;-)

Correct. Technically it is possible (and there are providers overseas doing AMR-WB and G722 on the VoIP) but unless they move away from legacy interconnects that won't happen here.

well that sucks.  

I imagine 2Degrees will start bleating to the comcom about how this is an unfair advantage that VF has over them, like they did with on-net/off-net pricing differentials.
