Voxbone slashes latency times

Voxbone is offering better coverage than ever with the launch of a new PoP (point of presence) in Australia, the company said.

The additional node located in Sydney will soon support latency-free calls originating from Australia and New Zealand, as connections will be routed locally within Voxbone´s recently added PoP.

Voxbone calls made within Australia and New Zealand will have a latency as low as 20ms, which is equal to the standard delay times expected from a traditional PSTN (public switched telephone network) line.

This means that the expected “mouth-to-ear” audio delay in the region will be no different than your standard fixed-line connections, which is to say, undetectable to the human ear.

Voxbone offers toll-free numbers throughout the region, as well as landline numbers in 140 key cities within Australia and 20 cities in New Zealand. To complement this offering, Voxbone services also include virtual mobile numbers in Australia.

Voxbone takes the complexity out of global telephony by providing local virtual numbers and SMS services, on demand and via API, in more than 60 countries and 9,000 cities around the world.
