Not the same as "HD" voice, PureVoice is supposed to be tolerant of high packet-loss connections.

Pure Voice changes the way the Ooma handles data, in a manner that he handles network jitter better, so some people that have had audio quality issues, this should be a big improvement.

Ooma advertises it as a business level Voip server to handle calls much better.

Sounds good, if it works as advertised I will be very happy since I have had jitter issues with my connection.

I want to give special mention to our newly announced Ooma PureVoice™ technology. In the business world, Internet telephony is widely deployed and works quite well, but in the home it has traditionally suffered from poor or variable voice quality. Ooma PureVoice is a breakthrough solution combining multiple advanced technologies so that even under suboptimal Internet conditions (for example when congestion occurs) you will continue to receive clear, high quality voice.
I think it's for everyone. It doesn't require Premier. Not sure if it will work for Hub users or if it requires the Telo. Based on the latest Telo release notes, the new Telo firmware supports PureVoice, but there are servers that need to be upgraded to support it. I don't know if the Hub requires a firmware upgrade or if it will get it.

I seem to remember reading that the Hub will support it but I can't find it now. You could search the forum for PureVoice.
