Updated: clarified "international" Wi-Fi calling.

Sprint today announced several new milestones for its network. To start, HD Voice is now available to Sprint customers nationwide. Sprint first launched HD Voice with the HTC EVO 4G in 2012 and now says 28 of its smartphones are capable of making HD Voice calls. Sprint today announced its LTE network has expanded to 28 new markets, and now reaches a total of 471 cities and 225 million people. Sprint expects to reach 250 million by mid-year. Sprint expanded the reach of Sprint Spark by three markets, including St. Louis, Winston-Salem and Greensboro, N.C. Sprint also announced the forthcoming availability of international Wi-Fi Calling on select smartphones. With Wi-Fi Calling, Sprint customers will be able to make calls and send texts via Wi-Fi in more than 100 countries around the world. Wi-Fi Calling will launch in a few weeks. Last, Sprint is prepared to deploy 8T8R radios in order to boost the coverage and the strength of its 2.5GHz spectrum. The 8T8R radios are being tested and will go live in Spark markets later this summer.

Had HD Voice in midwest for months already

I have to say, the voice quality of Sprint's HD voice is awesome when talking to another Sprint phone. I've been able to enjoy this since about last October so far and the quality is excellent. It sounds like a VoIP call, much higher bandwidth call with better voice on both ends. Nice to see they rolled it out nationwide now. Now I just need AT&T to catch up with their network so my work phone can have that capability. Also the carriers should have cross-carrier compatibility.
