Vonage You are correct in stating that a number of variables need to be factored in and

You are correct in stating that a number of variables need to be factored in and may in fact be hard to control outside of your home environment - ISP/VoIP provider/Home Network.

Of the 3 variables noted above [(1) ISP (2) Voip provider (3) Home Network] 2 of the 3 are difficult and expensive to control [(1) ISP (2) Voip provider]. The Home Network can be controlled and where QoS can be applied with relative certainty. QoS can also be applied to (1) and (2) but that would be very expensive with a host of challenges specifically if the ISP and the Voip provider is not one of the same.

Most home users will not purchase commercial grade service levels because of the costs. So High Speed Internet service to your home via Cable has the most issues because of how the ISP distributes the bandwidth at each distribution node. I leave out the DSL part as that is a very different beast having its own set of issues primary with distance from your home to the carrier office.

OK, So if you've got Cable and your service is with Rogers, for most home users this means 4 levels of shared throughput. For Rogers the shared throughput I recommend is High-speed Internet Extreme [1st choice] or High Speed Express [2nd choice with issues ].

High-speed Internet Extreme may provide the best Voip experience if the mix of traffic is going to include concurrent multimedia/VoIP utilization and if your home network has a router that incorporates 802.11e Quality of Service capability.

Take note that many Routers do not incorporate QoS capability unless their only router is the one proved by the Voip service provider like the Linksys RT31P2 Device which does incorporate QoS capabilty. If on the other hand one already had an existing home network with a Internet gateway [Router connected to a Cable Modem] the chances are high that the gateway does not incorporate QoS capability natively –and if that is the case then a Phone adapter like the PAP2 will not get the packet prioritization required to provide consistently higher quality of Voice. Service.

If the mix of traffic is not going to concurrently include multimedia/VoIP traffic then the High Speed Express service will be adequate - however the service will be inconsistent .

Now if your existing Home Network does include a Router incorporates QoS capability and that QoS capability is turned on THEN the PAP2 device will have the Voip packet prioritization needed to assure highest quality of voice service – with a caveat – since the Home Network Router has ZERO influence over how the ISP provisions the shared bandwidth – the only control you as a consumer have is the traffic contained within your home network If the ISP/VoIP part of the traffic is erratic the QoS in your home network will be much less effective or ineffective.

The variables that a home user cannot control unless service levels are guaranteed is the ISP and the Voip provisioning of services
