How fast does your internet connection need to be for VoIP to work well?
dthomas 1 year ago
I would like to cut the telephone cord at my house and switch over to a VoIP system. It would save me hundreds of dollars per year, but my concern is the fastest internet service I can get where I live is DSL with 3Mbps download speed. Correction "up to 3Mbps". The reality is that when I do a speed test I almost always get 2.45Mbps. Is this fast enough for VoIP to work ok? I don't want to ditch my traditional telephone if callers hear a lot of lag or very poor voice quality.
