Skype and Network Latency
Authored by: chyna4xena on May 23, '06 11:05:36PM

If you are getting latency on SkypeOut, I wouldn't just assume there'd be similar latency on Skype-to-Skype calls - the interface between the Skype network and the POTS seems to me to be a likely candidate for a bottleneck.

As others have noted, latency on Skype-to-Skype calls is rare, and when it exists, is not dramatic. I have rarely experienced a detectable hint of latency, and I'm on only a 512/128 connection (I haven't Skyped internationally, though). It was always temporary; as soon as the overtaxed CPU relaxed, the latency disappeared.
