Hi Guys
I've been having problems with Skype. I call my parents in Australia once a week (landline). But for the past 2 weeks the sound quality has been really bad. Just getting distorted and robotic sounds from my end and the other end of the caller.
I've searched on Skype for solutions and tried all of them. But nothing seems to work, I've reinstalled Skype but still the problem. Is it internet or my computer that is the problem..

Your help is really appreciated!

Unfortunately, if your speaker and mic settings have not been changed on either end, then distortions and squelching indicate a problem with the line, and not your equipment.

So nothing you can do really.

what the two above said, but it may be worth switching to googletalk for a few weeks.

It is a crappier version of skype, but the traffic isnt as heavy and you may be able to get a better quality call out of it.
