Is there any benefit to choosing a VoIP provider based on where their server is located?
reply to josephf Back when I started voip I had Packet 8 and they are located in San Jose (I think) I am in Ohio. Had no real problems. Ping came back at around 90ms.Other providers I have used have had sip servers much closer to me but again no real difference.Also another wild card is do they proxy the audio stream or dump it to a local gateway. Sorry not sure of correct terminology.I think having multiple servers geography located for fall over is more important than getting a server local to you.
