Vodacom SA to offer Super High Definition for VoLTE users

19 Oct 2018

Vodacom South Africa is partnering with device manufacturers to introduce Enhanced Voice Services (EVS) – also known as Super High Definition (SHD) voice or HD Voice+ – over a live commercial network. Vodacom originally launched VoLTE functionality back in April 2015, and VoLTE subscribers using a compatible handset on the Vodacom network can now experience improved voice clarity made possible by the EVS codec.

Siyabonga Zulu, Vodacom Group Managing Executive for Radio Access Network Engineering, commented: ‘Vodacom is always looking to improve the experience customers have on our network. Deploying EVS is another step in this process and will ensure even better voice quality for our 4G users.’
