dropping packets to disrupt VOIP?
Posted on 2006-12-01
I use voip. my ISP has financial incentive to make me stop. since they can't stop me by blocking ports, they instead randomly drop packets. so my pings anywhere in the world have a time out every 1-2 seconds.
the point of this is to make the VOIP unusable, but it still doesn't really effect email and the web.
anyone ever hear about this? how can I get by it? is this common? is this an actual scenario?
I'm interested in any comments.
