Re: Start Communications - new TPIA Rogers/Cogeco
said by taytong888:Technically, 64Kbps will work. Realistically, you should have a minimum of 128 or 256Kbps on the upstream, in case you have other traffic running at the same time.
I got a few questions about upload rate:
1. What is the minimum upload rate that is good for VOIP applications?
said by taytong888:512Kbps is plenty, however, you will still probably want to configure some sort of QoS on your router to give VoIP preference on your network.
Is 512 kbps good? I am subscribing to Start's standard cable, i.e. 18 Mbps down and 512 kbps up. Not sure if this is good enough for VOIP. I forgot the link to a web page that test VOIP quality, e.g. jitter.
www.pingtest.net works for me, but you can run all sorts of tests. Just don't take the results of a single test and expect those to be absolute. There are a lot of reasons why a single test or site isn't giving you the entire picture.
said by taytong888:Rogers is still trying to figure out their channels and is in the midst of releasing higher upload speeds.
2. How come Cogeco gives a higher upload rate than the Red Barron?
said by taytong888:Sorry, I'm not Rocca, but I hope this helps.
Thanks in advance for your reply!
