Saudi Telecom Company (STC) launched HD voice on its 3G GSM network today, giving the country two operators providing wideband services.
The news bubbled up on Twitter yesterday, buried in a flurry of #HDvoice AT&T tweets. STC has a web page and video explaining the new service to customers that can be found at http://www.stc.com.sa/wps/wcm/connect/arabic/services/mobile/other/hd-voice.
STC is the largest carrier in Saudi Arabia and has operations and investments in a number of countries. Its AXIS subsidiary in Indonesia launched HD voice in January.
Last week, Saudi carrier Mobily announced HD voice service.
