Default Skype and Talk Talk

Hi All

I have just been told by Carphone Warehouse that their Talk Talk 3 (free
broadband) offering is not compatible with Skype.

Can anyone advise if this is fact? Amd is it therefore not compatible with
any voip products?

Many thanks

S

Don't know about not compatible, but their broadband is so poor, it is
next to useless, so you may find problems with Skype, just like you find
problems with everything on TalkTalk. Though as Skype is a P2P program
and TalkTalk degrade P2P use it, it quite possible that it will become
useless for that reason also.

You could however use proper VoIP, and not use Skype Hype.

For what it is Skype works fine, in most cases with a better sound
reproduction that most other VOIP services I tried

YES YES PLEASE!! A special newsgroup for Skype ! A wonderful idea!
Then, when anyone posts Skype here, we can redirect them
appropriately.

At least you don't see endless posts at it isn't working
today. Unlike with Sipgate users in this ng.


Sipgate is working fine today. Where are the endless posts saying it
isn't..?

(Look up the meaning of the word 'endless')
