      Sky and SKYPE

      Hi,
      Can any one tell me please if SKYPE works successfully over Sky BB?
      I don't want to waste my time trying to set-up SKYPE on my daughters kit if it's a no-go.
      I have searched the forums here but have not turned up anything.
      Thanks,
      Martin

      Yes - works perfectly for me....no problems. It didn't work very well on my previous ISP (F2S) but I have had much better results on Sky BB.

      MSN Live with video even better, tell the truth, but only works with other MSN Live contacts!

      I've been using and its very good call quality. It does help if you have a decent microphone/headset.

      OK peeps; that's good news.
      I use SKYPE quite a lot to talk with relatives in Australia. I / we find it an excellent application. We have a gizmo called a uConnect V901M which interfaces with SKYPE so that we can use our cordless DECT telephones to make and receive both VOIP and landline calls......wonderful.

      Thanks to all for your feedback.

      Just don't ask F2S if Skype works on Sky, they will say no ....
