Required Up/Down Speed

Post by Adam » Sun Nov 01, 2009 11:04 pm

Howdy,

My provider (AT&T in Los Angeles, CA, USA) offers UP TO 3.0 Mbps down and 512 Kbps.

However when I download files, I am actually getting somewhere around 300KB/sec. I am unsure about uploading files...

Will these speeds work fine with the Ooma device in terms of call quality and no lag?


Thanks!
Adam

try www.speedtest.net and verify your d/u stream. After that you can setup QoS and that will provide priority to your ooma.

3.0 megabits per second (MBps) translates into approximately 375 kiloBytes/sec. So you are getting almost exactly what AT&T has said they'll provide.

Yes, it should work. Make sure that the jitter and quality of service are acceptable using the WhichVoIP.com Broadband Jitter Test.
