    This may seem a little subjective, but....

    ...does anyone think the call quality on Skype is getting worse?

    My wife and I both work from home, have Skype call packages, incoming numbers, the lot.

    In recent weeks, we are experiencing loads more poor quality calls, people unable to hear us etc. - me on Mac, her on Windows.

    I've actually switched my outbound calling to VoIPCheap, which is much better, but lacks features I need. We have a good quality DSL connection which is fine for everything else.

    Would you expect anything less from Microsoft?

    Lately -an by lately I mean in the last 2-3 weeks- the quality of the Skype-to-Skype calls has become ridicolous. Frequent disconnections, metallic sounds, images are freezing and so forth. The people I talk to and I myself have lots of band to waste, so it is not that we have the bottleneck of the internet speed. Simply, something is not working as good as before. The client has also become a bit too overbloated, but that's another story.
