VoIP future

VoIP is becoming more and more popular. It has good market potential. The number of VoIP providers is increasing day by day around the world each of them expecting a share of the cake. Yum………. It’s not too far that becomes a communication standard. According to a study, vonage is more popular in USA and Skype is more popular among voip users in UK. Google has its own voice messaging application called Google Talk which is giving stiff competition to the Skype. As Google talk is freely and easily available, its user base is increasing day by day. But the sound quality with Google Talk is not as good as that with Skype. With Google flirting with voice recognition technologies and searches based on them, it is all set to conquer the battlefield. Some mobile phone network companies are coming up with special filters that restrict its subscribers using VoIP services. VoIP is biggest upcoming threat to them as it is dead cheap. Even the cable companies are getting serious about VoIP.

I just want to inform everyone to a new web site called VoIP Spear ( to measure your QoS. It's the Internet's best and most accessible QoS testing service. It utilizes packet loss, latency, and jitter to calculate a MOS score between 1 (very poor quality) and 5 (excellent quality) for your Internet connection. VoIP Spear runs 24x7x365 so you can always have an idea of what your VoIP QoS is.

VoIP Spear shows your QoS in easy-to-read charts. You can also have it send you email alerts when your quality drops too low.

VoIP Spear ( is free for personal use.
