@jherbert,

Good point. I just don't see it being widespread but for the HD aspect that people really have no understanding of. At least when it comes to voice.

@Henrisha,

Marketing-wise... yes.

But from a product development, if it's not something people find value in, you shouldn't do it just to look good compared to competitors. That's how market share gets gobbled up by someone else.

Re: Verizon's Already the Best... Right?
HD Voice is another level beyond current call quality for all the providers. I can spend all day on a conference call in Lync, for example, because it supports wideband voice. Spending the same time on a regular phone usually means headaches and tiredness. I'm a huge fan of wideband audio, and getting it on more phones can only be a good thing in my opinion.

Well, if you're the best, then why not rub it in to the competition? Lol. That seems to be how many companies operate these days.

Isn't Verizon's voice call quality already the best? Why are they trying to rub it in now?
