That's not too surprising.  Voice and streaming media take a fair amount of bandwidth, and they are competing with your other basic functions.  Normally, it's voice or streaming music that suffers, though.   If you have your Maximum Bandwidth set too high in Preferences >> Graphics, your viewer will try to use all available bandwidth to maximize FPS and reduce lag.  When it does that, voice and streaming music get really choppy or stop completely.

I don't know why your viewer is doing the opposite.  Probably something to do with the way your own computer works.  I'm afraid that the best solution is to avoid using voice as much as you can, or try to find a way to boost your bandwidth.  If you're using wireless, get off it.  Wireless makes inefficient use of bandwidth anyway, and creates problems in SL for a lot of people.  If your ISP offers a service with creater bandwidth, find out how much it would cost to switch.
