Skype and ISP Quality

Over the last few months I have noticed a drastic decrease in quality over Skype. Regardless if we use one, two, or ten users on Skype, (and I am usually hosting since I have 2.5mbit upstream) we notice some people have excellent quality, and some have very horrible quality.

I Forgot To Blog Today

Oh my, so sorry. The other day I kind of implied I would make up for slacking, but I had a busy day, went to bed, woke up late, and continued my todo list. I run into the item of writing a blog and realized it’s already nearing midnight. Woops. Read more…
