Vodafone NZ has announced that it has achieved another New Zealand first, enabling Enhanced Voice Services (EVS, also known as HD+ Calling) on our VoLTE and VoWiFi network for select Samsung and OPPO users.
Benefits of EVS include improved voice quality, better call resilience under less than ideal network conditions (such as freak weather events), and improved network capacity. Additionally, as part of our ongoing upgrades, VoLTE call connections on devices will now take less than two seconds on average to connect, which to a customer can feel like an almost instant connection.
After significant investment in Vodafone’s network over the past few years, umlaut has officially announced that Vodafone has the best network in New Zealand, outperforming both Spark and 2 Degrees. In extensive driving tests of around 6,700 kilometers across New Zealand, Vodafone scored 240/300, while Spark and 2 Degrees each scored 201/300.
