Looking at 2Talk for VOIP for business. Any feedback over call quality?

Hi Owen
I have been with 2talk for about a year and half. Call quality has been ok and the system has been running smothely for allmost all the time.
Only one drawback so far has been the slow response to any tech matters.

Should've mentioned that I'm using it as a standard phone, a gigaset s685ip. No special business setup.

I've used 2Talk a fair amount and don't recall any issues with call quality. If you did have issues it's more likely to be your broadband connection.

Use it at another one of my businesses (into an Aastra 57iCT) with fax to email - works like a champ.

They only show G729 and 711 on their website G722 would be nice  if  all parties support it including the  big telcos..

2talk don't support G.722

WxC do and I believe since they IP peer with TelstraClear I believe G.722 is supported between both of these.

No TCL do not support G722 we do, I have pushed them on this a few times on our IP interconnect, but they will not be doing it anytime soon




Yes I am a employee of WxC (My Profile) ... but I do have my own opinions as well Wink

I tend to use 2talk over a 3G connection and usually don't have any quality issues. Sometimes, when I am in the back of beyond and very little signal (or in Newmarket for some reason), it gets degraded, but that's to be expected. When using it over my wi-fi connection at home, I haven't had any issues.

I am new to VOIP and have been trialling 2talk over the last week. Voice seems to be good as gold, no problems with quality or setup. I am having problems with fax however. I have followed all the instructions but can neither send nor receive. My ISP is wireless, and I have read the comment somewhere that it is virtually impossible to setup fax with VOIP over satellite or wireless. Is this true? If so, I wont waste any more time on it.

Have plan, send $NZD50m

That would be my call depending on the wireless but I will be interested to see others who have made fax go, chime in.

I haven't managed to make fax work on TC HFC 15/2 yet.  I can send to the 2talk fax server but I can't sent off net.

Give up on fax.  Unless it's 100% necessary most businesses now can get away with scan to email.
