I hear mention every day about "I can't use italk" or My VoIP garbles up as latency is to high, I have never seen such problems.

With todays testing 1RXTT, EVDO, GPRS, UMTS, ADSL, Dial-up. I only had problems using GPRS and even that worked though was extremely stuttery. Dial-up was clean sounding but delayed. I even managed some pretty good two way video (15FPS, 160x120, 3GP mp4 encoding with AMR NB)with a friend down country over UMTS. (thanks to the random Directshow AMR/3gp CODEC)

Could somone eleborate on this? I have an iTalk phone, and get consistently low pings (see below) so have no problems, It works great for me.

I am (Still) on Ihug Bliink 256/128Kbps 20GB and am scared if I change plans or providers I'll get much higher pings. does anybody know more on this?


This or next week should see some interesting on-the-road testing (when I manage a chance before returning to full time work)


here are the ping tests.
