My perception is that sound quality on calls has degraded significantly recently. Anybody else notice the difference?

Not really but calls off-set will not be as clear as calls on-net

Vodafone the other day put out something that said the same thing, calls due to covid and the leadup to covid were up over 70% overloading systems, Spark are having the same issue too I hear. So there is a really good chance that 2D are suffering the same fate or it will be happening while handed over to the other network depending on what network the other part is on.

Modern platforms like Whatsapp / MS Teams calls (and I assume Skype) are much better quality than PSTN.

Most providers are all pulling forward their interconnects to help with quality and network load

I have just given up on a couple of recent voicecalls I have done. So bad its painful to listen to. Not normally this bad, but cellular voice is pretty crap most of the time, this is sounding like realvideo streaming over dialup in the early 2000s bad. Charlie brown adults have better vocalisation. Hate to think how half deaf people are getting on with the voice calls.

Called into conference call yesterday from downtown Aucjland. Over course of conference quality deteriorated terribly. Other callers said their quality fine. Sounds like 2degrees problem.

Another thought, does HD quality calling work with 2degrees?

HD Voice has been supported on 2degrees for several years now. However the interconnects typically use lowest common denominator codecs so while you will get HD Voice between 2degrees customers, you may not if you are calling off-net. The number of HD-capable interconnects will increase over time.





iPad Pro 11" + iPhone XS + 2degrees 4tw!

 

These comments are my own and do not represent the opinions of 2degrees.
