Facebook Said, it’s Fast, Reliable and High Speed.
You don’t need to worry about the call quality it will be adjusted as per your connection speed. The voice and video calling is extremely high quality depends on the connection you are using, in case your connection goes down/weaken Facebook will notify you if the video call will not work.
The service is all free from Facebook you just need to pay the charges of your mobile network connection like 3G or LTE, but a WiFi connection is a best option to avoid that charges as well.
