Ahhh, the innner geeek

I contributed my experience with Vonage to this thred, but it's funny to see how many deep technical folks use airstreams. Great conversations about packets, gives me shivers

The comment on 256kbps uplink is interesting since most of the sat broaband providers only have 128kbs uplink. That would rule out using a satelllite broadband provider such as hughes. So unless you have a campsite or hotel that provides good quality broadband you could be in a challenged situation.

There is a setting in the Vonage control panel that allows you to use less bandwidth at the expense of audio quality if needed.

It's like turning down the volume, moving it to 30kbs is okay but if you use the phone line for faxing you'll have to crank it back up to 90kbs. Just ran into THAT little frustrating issue.

Anyone tried using voip with the sprint broadband networks?

We have vonage and like it. We have Cox cable as an ISP. Quality is great and so far (3 months) no dropped calls.
