Just curious, does anyone have any experience working with VOIP? Perhaps in a buisiness setting, running multiple lines? My understanding is, you order multiple lines but they all run off the same internet connection, so there's not a lot of installing to be done (at least, not as much as with conventional lines)... is this the case? How does the cost and reliability compare with traditional phone lines?
I suppose the quality of voip depends on your Internet topology. For example, on Shaw's network, they route everything through Calgary. If you wanted to call Sakatoon to Regina, all those packets go through Calgary and that can introduce some lag. A lot like trying to talk over a satellite link. SaskTel's network would route directly to Regina.
My current internet is off of satellite. I sit here in Saskatchewan, the data travels up to Anik F2 and down to Markham Ontario I believe. From there who knows where it goes. voip would probably not work at all for me. Gaming is impossible with the lag.
