Thread: AfriHost on Hold Music

  1. #1

    Default AfriHost on Hold Music

    Has anyone else noticed how bad the on hold music is for afrihost is ?

    Never mind the uninspiring anything but gentle tones playing it is horribly distorted.

    it just seems to to add the frustration of going from first in to 26th with out explanation but automated American voice.

    It just feel like the equivalent of a cheap handwritten sign on the door.

    That's not really the type of experience that we want you to have. I'll be sure to pass on your feedback to our Team.

    If they haven't got paid bough bandwidth to play hold music without distortion, should we be worried?

    Just like most music isnít composed for the telephone, many audio files arenít optimized for the limitations of telephone speakers either.

    Missing the part where it sounds the same on cell-phone speakers.
