How to test your Internet to work VOIP/Skype?

Skype and other VOIP operators are working with a lot of lag, the provider makes an innocent face — "pings are, the stated rate is — nothing more do not want to know...". The provider has its product IP-telephony. I suspect that or is a specific the shaping or packet delay, is not critical for download, but is critical for Skype. How to pull the dash to clean water? Is there any specialized software that checks the channel for compatibility with VOIP?

Specialized software not met, but the minimum test cuts/no — you can ditch the VPN on the host outside of your ISP's network (buy a cheap VDS or get free trial VPN somewhere), connect a VPN to log in through Skype, if you using VPN it works — so obviously the provider cuts VOIP/Skype packets.
Likely to "catch" and punish the dash in the ru-realities is unlikely to succeed or would take a long time, so IMHO it will be easier to find another provider.

What is the difference from ordinary IP VOIP?
Unless specifically restricts some parameters.

Strongly recommend to punish such provider ruble... one is a warrior, but to do nothing is also not an option.
After check the operation of Skype through a vpn when you cancel a contract with them, you'll ask me why (answer preferably in writing) that leave because of the forced disruption of voip applications like skype ISP.

The operator will make large eyes and call you a LAMER, believe it or not, it may simply not be aware of. But the fact customer care is why a lot of can give, as long as it was documented.

In Your contract with the provider must be established the minimum connection parameters (delay, jitter). You enough to try iperf from You to any other computer, to generate them traffic, similar to skipalskiy or phone. So to find out, satisfy the conditions of the contract the service or not.
All tests between the two points have a common drawback, if there are problems in the channel, there is no way to establish which of the intermediate nodes experience a delay. We often use the mtr, although they can be tested only by ICMP, but it almost always helps. - Marilyne_Rueck commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:15
Thanks, I'll try. And how to make iperf generious traffic, similar to sapowski or phone? I don't see such option... - alisha.Jerde commented on October 3rd 19 at 04:18

Traffic is traffic. Take four, see which packets are transmitted(size, Protocol, width, traffic, other options) and generate the same. And then the experiment: the second point can be connected to Your ISP and then to that which is peering(tracert will help you identify)
