It'scable, up to 5MBPS up and 50MBPS down. As I say though, real world is typically less, although speed tests to http://testmy.net (whig is not on Time Warner's network) show respectable upload speeds, well above 2MBPS. I don't think three GSM channels should take that up.

Sounds like a bandwidth issue, but I really don't believe it is, if for no other reason than nothing else seems affected, including a VOIP phone (believe me, I'd hear about it if the VOIP phone was doing this). Besides, I should have up to 5MBPS upload speed, which in real terms is likely less, but not so much less as to explain this.

Dropped syllables, unintelligible audio (because of many many dropped syllables), words run together, in other words, typical extreme packet loss. Not just a degradation of audio quality. I don't know if the same occurs if I'm connected to several Allstar nodes, although I'm game to test that if anyone feels like it.
>> I'm certainly not opposed to the idea that it's a bandwidth problem, but I'd find this hard to believe, simply because there's no problem with the VOIP phone. That isn't running throughout the Asterisk box, BTW, completely separate. Definitely a puzzler though.
