Submission + - The new dawn of phone calls (techeye.net)

bossanovalithium writes: We can fly to the Moon but we can't have a phone call with reasonable quality. Why? TechEye talks to Xconnect's Eli Katz on how we can hear each other better and what's in the pipeline for telecoms the world over.

Back in 1936 — 74 years ago — boffins accepted that about 3.3Khz was the accepted frequency that telephone calls are going to run on and it's been like that, generally, ever since. Call quality is reasonable but leaves a lot to be desired. Think calls from Skype to Skype where quality is often crystal clear.
