No solution for me, unfortunately. Currently we're just living with the additional delay when calling certain numbers.

How do you arrive at 3 seconds? Is it that time delay until you hear the other end respomd? Isn't that 1.5 seconds each way or less? You do know that there is always a delay of .25 seconds or more when talking to a digital cell phone while it assembles packets? This has been true when analog went away, even talking to a local cell phone. This is x 2 if talking cellphone to cellphone. Try calling the other party from your cellphone to theirs, perform your measurament, and let us know. Just curious what that comes up with. It does apppear that the Ooma delay is larger than a cellphone, but part of it is because of cellphones themselves, so try the cell to cell. Thanks.
