  1. Om, this is highly unlikely unless the firms are counting call center VOIP traffic. IMs, VOIP, etc are very small traffic streams. Even a full quality, non-compressed VOIP bitstream WITH control information is less than 96kbps. Usually far far less, due to compression and silence suppression.

    IM is tiny. Its just small strings of text in minimal wrappers.

    Almost any amount of video, or even normal file sharing will always swamp VOIP.

    Of course, if you run a QOS company, you want it to look like there’s congestion!
