What speeds do you get on your high speed internet?

As long as the speed is sufficient to support the digital home phone along with your regular internet usage then you should have crystal clear quality! Personally, I find the quality to be superior to that of an analog telephone line.

Hi david,

We usually suggest having a minimum of 2mbps or faster for best quality.

I have 2mbps on a really good day, usually more like 1.5mbps. I have had the service for a few weeks now and its been fine. I don't really notice any difference.

Try this test here regularly. ... If you consistently get good results from that test, you should have a good Fongo experience.
