    AT&T WiFi Calling and HD Voice/VoLTE Houston

    Has anyone who has iOS 9 and WiFi calling enabled noticed in new areas VoLTE calls. I live in the Houston area and the last couple of days I have noticed my calls appear to run off of LTE instead of 4G. I thought it might be a beta glitch, however when I go to my hometown outside of the suburbs, my calls go to 4G.

    Go to the AT&T Coverage Viewer page (Google it). I just checked the other day and there's quite a lot of areas now shown on HD-Voice. Not only that, but they removed the restriction to have to zoom way in to see HD-Voice areas. You can now look at the whole country and see which areas have been turned on. Seems like AT&T is getting serious about the rollout.

    Not only are they serious about the rollout, but the performance has been impressive. I've noticed far faster call setup time and greatly increased sound quality even when calling non-HD voice numbers.

    Nice to see AT&T stepping up and improving voice calls finally.

    Notice that too. One thing that annoys me though is if you switch to the data view, and look at Vermont for example. Looks entirely covered in LTE, right? Zoom in.. Oh what's the little spot of light orange? Zoom in further.. Oh look, there's actually a large portion of the state is is lacking LTE. Don't get me wrong, they've made great strides, but it's still a little misleading.

    HD Voice rollout in Florida is slow as hell. And the Space Coast/Orlando are two areas that AT&T tend to roll stuff out relatively early compared to other markets.

    I freaking hate talking on the phone due to some people just being impossible to understand due to crap quality calls. FaceTime Audio helps alleviate some of that hatred.
