There’s been angst in the South African trade press regarding the lack of mobile HD voice service. So I’m annoyed about playing semantics for cheap PR.
“Contrary to popular belief – HD voice services are here (and sounding great)” issued by DUO Marketing + Communications for client Vox Telecom makes this biiiiig stretch that all is good because Vox supports HD voice over a broadband wireline connection, the Vox Suprafone.
“All that’s needed to support the service is an ADSL line Internet account, and a modem/router,” says the product manager. Why, you don’t even need a PC to make calls!
The ongoing discussion within the South African media has been about mobile HD voice service on a cellular network. Not what you can plug into a broadband connection…
It’s almost as annoying as the “HD sound” vs “HD voice” ambiguities that continue to pollute a discussion on wideband telephony.
