Best to have multiple records to help troubleshooting. Customer should run 3 test one after the other to confirm if internet is fluctuating/flapping.
The VoIP test will measure the internet quality at the end customer's location. Ensure that this test is run on the same internet connection that the phones are connected to (in case they have separate circuits for data and VoIP).
The test must be run when experiencing Call Quality Issues.
Poor internet quality is the most likely cause of audio issues. It can also be caused by someone on the same internet connection is using up the bandwidth i.e. downloading or streaming. For customer ease we suggest they bookmarks http://voiptest.thinktel.ca or leaves open in his browser.
After you have run the test. From the summary tab click on "Test audit report". This will bring you to Network Center, at the top of the page will be a test number. Please include this in the call record you supply.
