We are on a cable modem in the Midwest with Comcast as our provider. A traceroute indicates 11 hops with the first 7 within the comcast network with none of the first 7 hops lasting more than 14ms. The time jumps dramatically upon exiting the comcast network and arriving in the Global Crossing network hops.

My ping times to www3.ooma.com avg 12ms and my route is going through 11 hops.

I'm in South Florida with 24 hops to www3.ooma.com.

Ooma: 722ms

cellphone: 453ms

Welcome to the Forum. Thanks for the info.

I've had 3 Hubs for over a year and I've been relatively happy, but lately the latency has been growing to be very annoying. The latency used to be about the same as your Lingo, so very "cell-like", but that extra couple hundred milliseconds moves it into the "uncomfortable" zone for me.

Hopefully, Ooma will get the latency back down.

Average Latency for 24 Hour Period Beginning 12/02/2010 06:25 PM CST while using Ooma Premiere Phone Service

CST TIME LATENCY (ms)

Method: I recorded a series of 3 pencil taps on the phone after connecting to (909) 390-0003 as recommended by others on the forum.
The latency was recorded and measured using the Audacity audio recording software per Ooma methodology.
Each series of 3 pencil taps were then averaged together and timestamp was rounded to the nearest hour.

Setup: Per Ooma recommendations modem->telo->router, QoS on telo per Ooma recommendations 768 kbps Up 950 kbps Down

Other: Location: Midwest, Internet Provider: Comcast, Average Download: 19.14 Mb/s Average Upload: 3.05 Mb/s, Average Ping to www3.ooma.com = 82ms, Ooma Device: Ooma Telo

Latency Summary Measurements in Milliseconds (based on my raw test measurements)
MINIMUM 586
AVERAGE 675
MAXIMUM 812
MEDIAN 636.5

Great statistics wristwatch. I should do the same. I am in Ohio and bought the Telo a few weeks ago. We have not canceled our ATT line yet because of the noticeable voice lag using the Ooma service. I timed the lag using the method posted earlier in this thread and in that one test found it to be about 600ms. Any word from Ooma or a moderator as to when/if Ooma is implementing a fix?

Ooma has gone completely silent on this issue. I guess they think if they ignore us, we will just go away quietly.

There is related activity in the Beta forum. Some sort of update should be forthcoming.
