Sagacious Himself — brevity in circumlocution: never blague — suffering genius

August 22, 2013 “upgrades” block G.722, removal of allow all codecs

Filed under: BULLSHIT — Sagacious Himself @ 5:11 am restricts clients to non-HD codecs specially a mere three codecs now: officially disallows G.722 by removing Allow ALL codec option


G.711, G.729a, gsm

Which G.729 extensions you might wonder as G.729a is not specific enough… continue wondering about that and HD suicide. continues to support G.722 (from starter package up)

ONLY ONE upgrade outshines anveo:   TCP registration

yes, anveo offered SIP TCP long before but has made SIP TCP available to ALL clients.  Anveo requires a cost ineffective “Starter” service level for SIP TCP and G.722.  Low volume users need weigh the ~$8/mo cost for these two features.  This decision is made simpler by abandoning G.722 (or not embracing any wide-band codec).  Remember:

  • anveo does not proffer free incoming SIP nor free outgoing SIP.
  • anveo provides free SIP alerts to all packages so there’s no reason to constrain SMS by SIP to starter and above
  • voipMS does provide free incoming SIP and free outgoing SIP, but they artificially limit accounts to one iNum citing imaginary voxbone policy, and some routing features “require” purchasing a virtual DID (SIP URI based on account number) $0.25/mo + $0.001/min
  • unlimited [inbound] calling starts at ~$8/mo  (or better with PiaF signup gateway)
  • Vitelity also has a payg model alt to 8/mo

It would be foolish (or stupid) to use voip with tiny-band ISP…. so CEASE PANDERING to the cheap and offer more wide-band codecs.   The CHEAP will remain CHEAP.  (hint: they’ll not spend [much] money on services)
