- Has anyone ever tried Vonage or some other kind of soft phone at the house? If you have, what are some pros and cons. The parents are moving out of the US so I was wondering about it.
2. Do you purchase your printer ink online? If so, what site do you order it from?
VoIP has it's issues, especially with residential use. It usually uses high priorety packeting which basically means it assigns itself higer priorety than any other data. It does this because you will notice if the bit rate slows due to resends, etc beacuse you can hear the difference.
Although assigning it the highest priorety will, hopefully, give decent sound quality (no guarentee) it will definately use up as much band width as it can to achive this.
If you surf and phone at the same time, the surfing will suffer. (and you won't be able to download Walken's sig)

We're talking about using the phone over broadband. VoIP stands for voice over internet protocol or just voice over IP.
So unsupervised, have you experienced a lot of interference in the sound of your calls? If a person isn't surfing and is just using the phone, is it better that way? Most likely the parents will use the computer for e-mail, messenger, and perhaps soft phone. They're kind of computer illiterate but they know how to use certain things once I show them how.
I've had experience with VoIP in office settings, not over the net. It's improved over the years but it still can't compare to POTS (which is a fairly narrow audio band to begin with)
The QOS is totally dependant on the strength of the network and networks are rarely well designed and installed.
I don't know anyone using residential VoIP, sorry.

2, lol don't have to pay for my ink... got a friend who works in the home office who gets it for me
I'm supposed to go sign a 16 week contract to work for my old company but with a much higher pay. I talked to them about the VoIP and said an analyst came by, tested the network with current and prospective traffic all together, and everything seems it will work fine. Once we get the VoIP installed we'll see what happens. As for residential, VoIP is supposed to be the new thing considering is far cheaper. I'll try to look into it a little more. I remember a few years back one of my older friends who lived in Cali gave me a call using VoIP and the call was really crappy and it got dropped. I'm sure things have improved since then though.
