  • Skype Broadband Usage

    I see Skype is crafty to avoid showing how much Broadband up / download bps takes place per minute while making one of their phone calls, especially when using a web cam. Does anyone know how much broadband usage is involved per minute, such as for sound only and then sound and video.

    I am limited to 7 Gig pm or say 233 Mbps per day.

    You can use Netlimiter to see, however skype uses some sort of bandwidth even when idle so you've got to keep an eye on it.

      Thanks but my Connection Status Box really shows me all I need to no.

      The trouble is I am thinking of installing Skype to participate in our Club Committe meettings, to avoid having to hire a room and turn out. But like many such a meeting can go on for over an hour or more, and I suspect the clever guys suggesting this may not realise even only using sound, being onlne all that time could amount to several hundred BPS.
