I just ran the Xnet VFX Speed Test, and got the result back "Your connections jitter was measured as 290ms, which indicates that it is too unpredictable to sustain constant flow of data. As such Voip conversations may be broken"

Is this something to be worried about as I want to switch to VFX for voice calls......

Will depend, this is something we are looking at with this version, and will be used to give a general indication. You can run it a few times to see if you get consistant results, also did you run this from a wireless connection or wired ?

You do need to do a few tests to get the general trends. Also are you currently with Xnet, or another ISP? Your results should also be better if Xnet is your ISP, as there are less hops to get the traffic through.




Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
