    Phone conversation clarity

    When I receive a call from some people, the clarity is amazing. I could hear the birds tweeting behind the chap on the last call. What's happening?

    I've noticed the same thing with one of my subbies. We both have a Nexus 5 on T-Mobile. Usually the call quality is stunning. But, occasionally it's shite. Go figure....
    I'll think of something witty some time soon.

    Anyone using Voip aka MS Lync or Skype is likely to have a higher bit-rate and stereo rather than Mono from land lines.
    I have moved most of my team to VOIP and the call quality is mostly amazing compared to poxy land lines or mobiles.

    Mobile or landline?

    There's numerous mobile codecs depending on how good the signal is more bits for voice less for error correction and TFO which if implemented should give you the best mobile to mobile call quality.

    VoIP isn't necessarily better. It depends on so many factors. But it's got so much better (and cheaper) than it was generally a few years ago when I was moving people on VoIP back to land lines. Software PBX is now a good alternative to look at. Also, whatever system you use make sure you have a landline failover. Without that, loss of your internet connection is a double whammy.

    i can vouch for that. We recently migrated to Lync, but the geniuses in charge of the move thought they'd play the 'Suck it and see, let's skimp on the bandwidth and see what we get away with" approach. I've always blamed dropped calls on the engineers talking to me on their mobiles, now they can justifiably blame me and my high-falutin' 21st century VOIP disaster-on-a-desk solution.
