T-Mobile officially announced its new pre-paid “Un-carrier” model today at a press event in New York, detailing pricing and device availability. Along with rolling out LTE service in seven new metro areas, T-Mobile is also offering HD Voice on its nationwide network.
“T-Mobile is enriching the customer experience on its network with our nationwide launch of HD Voice. In addition, multiple third-party tests have shown that the experience on T-Mobile’s nationwide 4G network rivals major competitors’ LTE networks,” said Neville Ray, chief technology officer, T-Mobile USA. “This year, we’re stepping on the gas again. We are making continued coverage improvements and launching an advanced LTE network that will reach 100 million people by mid-year and 200 million people by end of year.”
T-Mobile’s HD Voice technology claims to improve in-call voice quality for customers who have compatible smartphones by reducing background, traffic and crowd noise. To experience HD Voice, customers on both ends of the call must have HD Voice compatible handset, such as the HTC One S, Nokia Astound or the Samsung Galaxy S III.
