Depends on if you want it to be understandable and of decent quality or not. I'm sure that they'll immediately turn down the bitrate into single digits so that all conversations are along the lines of talking to Charlie Brown's teachers.

I know VOIP is better than it was some years ago, but it certainly seems that overall phone call quality has gone dramatically down over the years.
