PostPosted: Sun Jan 20, 2008 12:01 pm    Post subject: My Test Results...Good/Bad??? Any insight appreciated. Reply with quote Back to top

I'm a new Vonage user. So far I've been pleased with the voice quality, although I've not really put it through its paces since I've only had it since Friday. I have had a few technical glitches with setting up my voicemail, which can be read about in a previous thread. I've run a few tests on the myvoipspeed.com site. I chose Chicago as the location since I'm in central Michigan. Everything appears to test very well for me, however I'm not sure totally how to read the results. The only reading that went to a "red" indication from test 1 to test 2 was the QoS. It went from 98% to 22%. Not sure how that will translate into actual Voip service quality. I also see the download pause figure went up quite a bit.

My setup is as follows...
Internet Provider - AT&T DSL at 1.5 download and 384 upload speeds
DSL Modem/Router - AT&T 2Wire Wireless Gateway
Vonage Adapter - V-Portal (just received it Friday)
PC Doing Test - Laptop using Wireless Connection at 54Mbps

Again, any thoughts and analysis on this would be great. Thanks!

Test #1 - no other internet activity or phone calls

Test #2 - With a Vonage call in progress ( I did notice a few short pauses in the audio while the test was running, but nothing major)

Your intial test result was excellent. The second test result is not as good as the first probably due to the fact that you were on a call while the test was in progress. I would not be overly concerned with the results of the second call as long as the call quality for you and the callee are clear with no audio issues. See the following link for an explanation on QoS: http://www.myspeed.com/whitepapers/qos.html

I agree. However, I would repeat the test from time to time. That download pause on your second test is pretty drastic considering the speed of your connection. You should also have gotten some packet loss numbers that are missing from your report.

Another place to test you Voip connection is at www.testyourvoip.com (test call to Boston). You can use that if you run out of daily trials on the forum test.

Forget Voip tests. The real test is to get on the phone with a friend (one who will spend about 15-30 min or more on the phone with you and tell you if you are breaking up, silent, sound like a robot, etc.) While on the phone get on the internet and do what you normally do. Download music, movies, web pages, chat, etc. etc. Do you or the remote party have any issues? If so when? That is far more telling then a QoS score of 28 etc.
