Local media in South Africa have no idea when operators will deliver HD voice in that country.
“South Africa seems to be lagging behind the rest of the world when it comes to mobile HD voice,” writes MyBroadband editor Rudolph Muller. “This includes African countries like Uganda, Mauritius and Egypt which have HD voice services.”
MyBroadband says Vodacom is “still investigating” mobile HD voice and has “no specific launch plans” to share at this point in time, while Cell C, MTN and 8ta did not comment on their plans.
HD Voice News is willing to speculate that Vodacom is a good candidate to offer HD voice since a couple of Vodafone subsidiaries; Ireland comes immediately to mind.
