It takes anywhere from 3-5 seconds when answering a call from a Call Queue to be able to speak, is there anything being done to shorten this time?
In testing we have seen that Polycom handsets take the longest, and USB headsets are usually the shortest, but it is still a significant amount of time.
My users are very frustrated with this delay. Please publish a fix for this.
In the On-Prem world, this is typically caused by signalling latency. I'd imagine that there's signifantly more signalling required to pin up a queued call over a p2p call.
1. I'd check that your route to the internet is as short as possible
2. Are your call queue agents in the same region as your o365 datacenter?

Still a significant delay. If our agent starts speaking as soon as she answers the phone, the caller misses the first few words.
In the past we've educated our agents to wait until they see the call timer at the top of the call window before they start speaking.
When you see the timer start, you know that the call is pinned up and audio is flowing both ways.
