VoIPCheap Bandwidth Usage

Discussion in 'UK VOIP' started by =?ISO-8859-1?Q?brush-head=A9?=, Aug 19, 2005.

  1. Hi there

    I saw an earlier posting saying that 80-90K was about normal for both
    directions of a VoIP client.
    I'm just trying out VoIPCheap and intend using it to get my business
    going and contact clients (I'm a tight wad and have to be careful with
    cash).

    Questions: does the 80-90K above refer to Kilobits or Kilobytes does
    anyone know?

    How sensitive are VoIPCheap to people making lots of calls (100 per day)
    over the service at the moment or aren't they bothered?

    Many thanks for any advice/input.

    kbits/s ie about 40% of an ADSL upload rate is used by a single VoIP
    call.
