Technically, it meets VoIP requirements as per callcentric and their
recommended website for testing that: http://myvoipspeed.visualware.com/,
which came back with:
Test Type: Voice over IP
Downstream Jitter: 3.49ms
Downstream Loss: 0 %
Downstream Packet Order: 100 %
Upstream Jitter: 6.7ms
Upstream Loss: 0 %
Upstream Packet Order: 100 %
Packet Discards: 0 %
MOS Score: 3.9
Glossary of Results
I use a "slow" or "lite" speed service with a cable modem. I'm still
working with callcentric tech support, who are quite helpful, but I'm
dubious as to the outcome.
I had a PVR from the cable company but it would periodically basically
stop working, the image would be completely pixelated. A technician
inferred that there was a splitter somewhere because he wasn't able to
test our line, but he did have someone come out and replace parts outside
the residence, however, those parts turned out not to be broken. I
figure that the wiring in the house just wasn't done properly.
I might upgrade the service to at least test whether that helps.
