Default Telstra Crap

On Telstra's propganda website, they are now spruiking that VOIP is crap and
consumers whould avoid it like the plague. Sorry Telstra, you have missed
the boat and have become more irrelevant than ever. No wonder why Coonan
chose OPEL and that Telstra will NEVER get a look-in again at any Federal
money for broadband expansions.

generally, it is crap. its an immature product.

go look at whirlfool forums, posts like
- i cant get through to a local number unless i dial 03 9xxx instead of just
9xxx . . .
- i cant dial certain 13 numbers
- incoming calls get ring tone but dont ring at my end

mindless levels of complications and faults

Then, you have a hard wired phone

it rings, you pick it up, you talk

when you want to dial out, you lift it, and make a call

Its perfectly viable when the service provider knows what they are doing.

It's nowhere near as immature as that oaf Trujillo!

But, in fact, it's not at all immature. VOIP (as opposed to internet
telephony) is widely used in many large corporations and works
faultlessly.

Pretty much the same sort of thing as what you'll find in the broadband
forums - would you describe *that* as an immature technology? All sorts
of people have difficulties with all forms of technology. That's just the
way it is.

What about cars? There's plenty of people who similar sorts of faults
with their cars - i suppose you'd describe motor cars as an "immature
technology", would you?

Rather like Tel$cum in general then, ey?

There's plenty of times when ADSL works on someone's line, but the phone
doesn't - in those cases, internet telephony (which clowns like you will
insist on referring to as "VOIP") is more reliable than POTS.

Well, that's not exactly what it's saying. It's saying Skype is crap -
and skype *is* crap, for various reasons.

They're trying to extend problems with skype to all forms of internet
telephony by implication, of course. But that blog post doesn't really
say anything much at all about internet telephony other than skype.

Anyway, as one comment says:

"Why isn't Telstra talking up products that deliver on the potential of
the new tech, instead of attempting to turn people off?"

Why indeed???

Telstra is hardly the first company ever to say bad things about technology
that threatens to put it out of business. At least be glad we dont live in
a country with a monopoly carrier who has the power to get the government
to ban VoIP (as is the case in e.g. some South American countries)

Telstra misguided propaganda. I have to agree with Rod. I've had Engin on
cable for a long time, and no landline. It works so well, no one knows the
difference. I get a locally assigned number for people to call me on, I pick
up my standard cordless phone which has the base unit plugged into the wall
as per normal, but leading to my Engin box.
If I want to call emergency, they know where I am because of my local
assigned number that Engin gave me. If the power or cable goes down, well,
shock, horror, it diverts to my voicemail. And if I need to call out while
it's down (which has never happened while I was home), I guess I'd use my
mobile.
Visitors who use my phone don't even realise it is VOIP unless I tell them
afterwards, and most don't belive it until they see the Engin unit, tucked
up on a shelf in the walk in robe, alongside the router and modem. And even
then some think its a trick, until I flick the Engin box power off and tell
them to try to call out on the cordless in thier hand.

VOIP is not a problem for me and many others.

Adrian.

Never ever had any of those problems, ****wit. Simply get a VoIP box
pre-configured straight from your provider, you terminal ****wit.

And clearly many of them dont know what they are doing. Reminds me of the
days of callback services, 5-10 years ago

Hardly.

Even a fool can make and receive a call on a POTS service, Roddles. VOIP
should just work, in the same fashion.

Indeed now you can attach hardwire-like phones that just work like a normal
phone (or should)

Of course.

You cant expect them to cannabalise that. They cannabilise that, then
broadband and mobiles prices will go up to get that revenue back

You reckon Telstra maintain an average SLA of _3 seconds per year_
downtime across their PSTN network? My lack of a dial-tone at multiple
properties over the years begs to differ.

Wrong, everyone would just use their competitors, you stupid dunny cleaning ****wit child.

No, you don't use it because you're incapable. That's part of being a
Telstra sycophant, ****wit.

Pity about the fact the technology has been around well over 20 years,
****wit.

Pity about the fact it's replacing all circuit switched networks, ****wit.

Pity about the fact TLS MPLS network is essentially VoIP for voice (by
nature), ****wit.

Pity about carrier grade VoIP products available.

No pity in the fact you're a terminal backward ****wit with clearly no
idea on anything, ever.
