Call quality is generally affected by your network setup and bandwidth. Often times network issues relating to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) will rear their head in the form of choppy, hard-to-hear audio, making conversations difficult.
You can test your Internet connection by running a network test.
Nextiva Speed Test will examine:
- Download speed
- Upload speed
- IP address
- Packet Loss
Each device used for making and receiving calls requires .1 MKBS (100k) upload and download speed. These tests will show measurements of:
- Your current Internet speed
- Packet loss, which should be 0%
- Ping, which should be 70ms or less
- Jitter, which should also be below 70ms
If any of these scores are above the suggested requirements, we recommend that you contact your Internet Service Provider to go over your options. If you are seeing Packet Loss or excessive Ping, often times an ISP can and will correct this for you. If the issue is bandwidth-oriented, often you can increase your service package for a nominal fee.
