Digital phone/cable internet question

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Didn't know what section to put this in so a mod may need to move it.Right now I have a regular land line phone and broadband cable internet. I am thinking of changing to a bundle to save some money but I have a few questions. The package I am looking at has 2 MEG up and 512k down along with digital phone. The question I have is does getting or making a phone call disconnect you or have any effect on connection while gaming etc.? Or can I surf/ game etc while making and receiving calls with no problem?

The internet won't be affected if you go on the phone; they are still on different connections. You'll be fine.

We aren't talking about dial-up here

Is digital voice the ISP's way of saying VOIP?

Phone from a ISP generally uses a separate connection. However, if you were to use a voip service like vonage then it would conflict.

512Kbps down and 2Mbps up is a strange connection for most ISPs, especially for cable as its technically more difficult. What ISP are you using?

I have never had any issues with Vonage and internet speeds. VOIP uses very little bandwidth. I had Comcast's "lite" service for a while (1Mbs DL and 256Kbps UL?) with Vonage and it was just fine.

ISP is a local company IMCTV. The connection is listed as 2Meg/512kb. Used them for years for internet and TV and their internet is really good. No limit on downloads and always a good low ping connection.
