    Ok I know this is off Topic, but since I saw some posts about VOIP I thought
    many of you may know.

    Ok I have a Customer (Name Withheld of course)
    They have a T1 and Of course they Split in two 50%Voice and 50% Internet.
    (Which Sucks of course. )

    My Question, (They have 50 People BTW) How much Bandwidth does VOIP take?
    Is it really 100Kbs for each phone call?

    I've been Reading 30-60K?

    Any VOIP experts?

    As slow as their network is now, I thinking of getting them a Dual Router
    and signing up for DSL
    Keep the Static IP for Remote) At least their download would be faster.

    What does anything think?

    russ, unfortunately it's a piece of string question.

    what protocol? also you will also probably find a lot of calls can be
    rerouted outside of your main connection thereby not all calls will be
    within that T1.

    check out www.voip-info.org for more details (also check out
    www.asterisk.org )

    also why would you need static ip dsl for remote, just use www.no-ip.com
    works great for me.

    Cheers,
    Dean

    ok, I don't know what a string question is but I'd imagine that it has no
    answer?

    And yes I know about dynamic DNS Hosting services.
    Its just that the UP on a half of a T1 is faster than the Up on a DSL

    String question is: How long is a piece of string?

    I usually cut/make mine the correct length? *or as Short as possible?
    So this question will be answered in a perfect length?

    So to me a string question would be answered in the shortest length of time.
    (Sorry I guess I never heard this phrase before? is it British?)
