Telenor and Mobilink Starts HD Voice Calling in Pakistan

Telenor Pakistan and Mobilink have started offering High Definition voice calls to their customers. Both companies said that HD Voice calls are now rolled out for their respective customers and can be availed on phones that support HD calling.

Generally speaking an HD voice call is just better and enhanced voice quality call with nothing different otherwise.

Not to be mentioned, Mobile HD Call are usual and regular voice calls, but with better quality.

It must be noted that Mobile HD calls can only availed when both parties are using compatible phones.

Mobile phone users won’t have to configure anything to change any setting to avail HD calling on their phones. Moreover, HD calls will be charged as per usual tariffs as they were previously in place for voice calls.

Technically speaking, Mobile HD Voice calls on AMR (Adaptive Multi Rate) Wideband technology which (W-AMR) enables high-quality voice calls in mobile networks and an improved user experience.

It provides significantly higher voice quality for calls between mobile phones supporting the feature, and can be implemented in GSM, WCDMA-HSPA and LTE networks. HD Voice also helps people hear better in noisy environments.

  • Telenor is worst network in terms of voice quality. Mobilink, on the other hand, is much better and has improved over the time.

    • You are 100% right.
      Whenever i call anyone sometimes i stop to hear sound. I have telenor…. Call quality is so poor… I dont know what to do…
      I have mobilink but wtf with it
      Road outside my house gets 3g whereas i dont get 3g inside my house.

    • Absolutely right. Telenor is the worst network. Most of the times it shows the other number busy but when I call from other network it immediately connects. They cant even it provide just average voice quality and talking about HD voice calls.

    • “Both phones on the call must support HD Voice and share a carrier that supports HD Voice. That means if you have an iPhone 5 on AT&T and you’re calling someone with an iPhone 5 on Sprint, you won’t get an HD Voice-quality call. ”

      Sad to hear. :(

  • I am getting HD Calls on Telenor for last one month on Blackberry Q10. whenever I call someone a prominent HD Call logo appears on screen.

  • I am using a ZTE Blade S6 with a Ufone SIM and its been a few days where its showing me “HD Call Active” whenever i make a call. The audio quality of my calls do seem improved A LOT, as there are basically no voice distortions or elements of low quality. I wonder if its exclusive to Telenor or Mobilink, or otherwise.

  • Telenor has advertised a week ago on it’s website that they have started offering HD Voice free of cost. HD Voice is enhanced quality of audio during call. Recently asked mobilink customer representative and they have briefed me that they are not offering any such services till now.
    Tell me your source where you get this news that mobilink is offering this facility or post an update about it.

    Thanks

  • میرے پاس 5 نیٹ ورکس کی سمیں اور پی ٹی سی ایل بھی دستیاب ہے مگر جو کوالٹی وارد کی ہے (کال کی) اس کا کوئی ثانی نہیں وارد سے بات کرنے پر ایسا محسوس ہوتا ہے کہ بات کرنے والا بالکل آپ کے سامنے بیٹھا ہے اور آپ فون پر نہیں بالکلہ آمنے سامنے بات کر رہے ہیں۔
