BTW, in networking terms that is called latency.

I would not expect it to work at your office. Most businesses block all outgoing ports and only open the ones that are necessary for the business to function.

It is true that many businesses do use tools to restrict access, but most use blacklists and other more intelligent types of restriction rather than wholesale blocking of the unknown. I would have no trouble using Ooma where I work, but I cannot access any popular web based email sites, social networking sites, file sharing protocols, or porn sites.
