G.726 16/24/32/40 Kbps 96/64/48/38
G.729 8 Kbps 192 Requires license

iLBC 15 Kbps 102
LPC-10 2.5 Kbps 614
Speex 2.15 – 44.2 Kbps 714 – 34 Open Codec

With higher compression you can squeeze more calls through the same connection pipe, however, the savings of bandwidth does not come without a cost. The hight the compression the lower the voice quality of the call.
