are you smashing the connection, at the same time you are on the phone? does the other person mention the poor quality?

Genius has QoS so shouldn't be affected by data usage on the line. Follow the link in my signature, it'll take you through some basic checks and log a support ticket <to me - its in beta test> if needed...I'm assuming you only have a single handset, if you have more than one does it occur on all of them?

Nice self help! but nothing really fits my problem....

yes I do have more than 1 h/s and have tried  both I even tried using "genius go" and still got the same call quality thus points more towards a problem somewhere else.

I'm having the same issues. Voice breaking up. Only hearing half of every word spoken.

Yep. Probably the last day or two? System is unusable at present. Like being in a very poor cellular reception area.

Ok the likely source is something in the link from the PSTN network to the SIP network. With some carriers we have SIP interconnect so this could be being introduced outside our network. To trace this we will need specific examples that include:

Date
Time
A-Party number
B-Party number

Please log support tickets with preferably 3 examples per ticket with details as here.

Worth stating that having looked at ALL incoming residential phone-related fault tickets over the past two weeks, I am NOT seeing any significant reports of poor voice quality and those that there have been have been related to issues with the underlying copper circuit.

Not sure if this is any direct help as I dont have times for it.
But seems more like the general interconnect (possibly hamilton as I have spoken to another hamilton cust with the same problem)
As I was trying all sorts of numbers even 0800000000 and 0800131415

Nice try but there is no "general interconnect" :-)

We need the numbers and date/time so that we can trace the path of that precise call, with several thousand calls/hr its a pretty big haystack otherwise.

The most common cause of poor audio quality in a SIP environment is the crackle/static is injected at source (handset or analogue-to-SIP interconnect).

This problem sounds like you are talking to a robot ie pitch goes up and down and misses parts of the words.

I will start keeping a log but for general info it seems to mostly be 8-10 pm if that points to a load timeframe

what is yr connection? if you do not have a cir, you ate at the mercy of what anyone one else on your exchange is doing, QoS will only go so far, then again it could a sbs or network issue.

does the person on the other end, mention the bad audio, this is a very important question. Does the genius give a mos for each call?

kornflake: what is yr connection? if you do not have a cir, you ate at the mercy of what anyone one else on your exchange is doing, QoS will only go so far, then again it could a sbs or network issue.

I am on standard residential Adsl so no CIR here sorry and my connection is barely been used....

Both ends can hardly understand each other and is not related to what number I call
Even stranger is if I call using the genius go app. (using wifi) Its no problem

I've been on the phone to support this afternoon. The very helpful fellow told me the last caller had been complaining of the same problem.

No fix yet. Been elevated to next level.
