RE: [EFM] On the Worship of Speed
Just to play devil's advocate here, the fastest growing segment of the
telephony market, namely mobile telephony, apparently has little trouble
selling in service to customers, despite long, "poor" latency.
Of course the argument goes that the "advantage factor" of mobility
counteracts the reduction on perceived voice qulaity in people's minds.
Maybe so. But I bring it up to point out that there is some quesiton, in
some quarters, as to how well a test subject's responses in a MOS testing
scenario correlate to what they're actually willing to pay for.

DSL uses ATM.
Also, DSL typically leaves the existing POTS service undisturbed,
and is most often a data-only service.
If you are talking of VoIP, then the answer to your question is "Poorly".
The slop in the network is hidden by intensive processing on both ends
of the network. Echo-cancellers and error concealment. And, of course,
no guarantee of performance. Of all people, I shouldn't have to convince
you of the problems of trying to sell such a service to customers.

How does it work on 128kb DSL links with PPOE today?
