Hi Expert,
  What codec would you recommend I use for a ADSL connection that has a fair amount of latency (approx. 200 ping to SIP server).

So far I have been having most success with gsm although I did experiment with g729 for a long time but was told this would only be good if I had less latency?

Thanks,
 Martin

What type of phone system are you using it on?  That makes a difference too

Phones are Snom / Cisco but we are now experimenting and having luck with much cheaper chinese models.

g729 has too much delay for us. We find ourselves talking at the time as the client a lot of the time. This does not really happen with gsm.

Does my question make sense?

For low bandwidth g729 is the best option. However if your having latency issues then I think you will have to settle with gsm. Otherwise give g711u a go, although its not low bandwidth.

How about speex or iLBC would they be better for low bandwidth? (compared to gsm)

You can give it a go. It's just trial and error i'm afraid as to what will best suit you.

Is there a service I can use to help me test? Or do I have to "phone a friend" ?
