Commenting on the launch, the group’s chief commercial officer for residential services, Attila Keszeg, said: ‘Owing to the new HD voice the quality of telephone conversations has been further improved. The result is a richer, clearer and crisper sound and [T-Mobile] customers may now – and in the future – enjoy this feature free of charge.
