AT&T also plans to embrace over-the-top services
About a week ago,
that it would finally be brining the iPhone 5 to its wireless network. The company also made plans to bring HD Voice service to its LTE network.
Not to be outdone, AT&T has now announced that it will also add HD Voice service later this year. HD Voice provides users with higher quality (High Definition) audio, and requires support from the calling network and the devices making the call. That means that the network, your device, and the device of the person you're calling all have to support HD Voice capability.
AT&T senior VP Kris Rinne said, "HD Voice is part of our voice over LTE strategy."
Rinne also said that AT&T would be working on
LTE Advanced service
as well. LTE Advanced is designed to reduce interference and bond traffic from multiple frequencies together.

Agreed, but hand-set noise-cancellation and improved signal-strength (more towers) are the primary issues for many of us. Without those, HD will only bring some of us clearer drop-outs and wind-/crowd-noise.
Note: "We" may deserve our signal problems as two troubled areas I've been in have NIMBY'd it on themselves.

So does this consume data then? and minutes?
I suspect it'll use data since it's using LTE ... not a lot, but some people talk for hours a day on their cell.
