Why is there a long delay between dialing number and hearing it ring?

I just got a new modem, Arris BGW210.  People who call me tell me they sometimes hang up thinking the call is not connecting because they do not hear a ring.  But I get one ring before they hang up.  When I call out, I also notice a very long delay between dialing and hearing a ring.  I have also hung up and redialed calling out.

Why is there such a long delay between dialing a number and hearing a ring for both incoming and out going calls?

Re: Why is there a long delay between dialing number and hearing it ring?

Delay is not uncommon on VoIP and cell service.  You could try rebooting your modem to see if it helps.  The ringing issue could also be something a reboot will fix, make sure you don't have one of the many features turned on causing it.

Thank you. I guess not everything about the latest and greatest technology is better.  I think it is hard to talk on cell phones too due to delay.  Good old pots phones worked better and they worked during and after hurricanes here on the Gulfcoast when power is out for days.
