Cricket Wireless recently added HD Voice to its service offering. HD Voice, which requires both the caller and receiver to have compatible devices connected to Cricket's LTE network, delivers significantly improved voice clarity. HD Voice reduces background noise and permits people to talk and browse at the same time while on LTE 4G. The list of compatible handsets is rather limited at launch. The four devices that support HD Voice include the Alcatel Idol 4, LG Escape 3, Samsung Galaxy Sol 2, and the ZTE Grand X 4 — all of which need to be updated to most recent software build. The company didn't indicate if or when new phones will gain access to HD Voice. Cricket says HD Voice may not be available when the network is congested. HD Voice is free for Cricket customers to access and use.

The real news here is the availability of VoLTE to Cricket customers

Until now this has only been available to branded, post-paid AT&T customers and none of their MVNOs.

This is important in areas where AT&T only broadcasts LTE on its low band holdings (like in most of NC for example).

The one issue I can see though is AT&T's normal insistence on only allowing VoLTE on certain devices (they are much more strict when it comes to VoLTE provisioning as compared to Verizon and T-Mobile).
