57% of businesses apprehensive about adopting VoIP

Net4Now :: News Story

Switchvox are recommending that users find a reliable VoIP provider, know your bandwidth capabilities, get a static IP from your ISP, investigate QoS, get the right kit.

They recommend at least 100Kb/s for every call. Considering broadband in the UK is only 256Kb/s and contended - that doesn't look good.

Businesses should really look for SDSL or VoIP provided as a by product of another connectivity option such as LES (LAN Extension Services) or high bandwidth IP leased lines.

Until BT guarantee QoS on ADSL it's a losing battle.
