Hello!

 

I'm downloading Skype for Windows but it's going so slow. The download rate is around 2000 B/s. Does anyone have a clue how to speed up the download?

Is it the installer you're downloading and that's slow, or have you already installed Skype and the download speed you're getting during a call is slow?

 

What results do you get if you run a test at www.speedtest.net?

I also experience extremely slow download of Skype. I used to download Skype in the past and it took a few minutes. I am using the same computer and the same ISP. 

 

Any idea what went wrong?

Skype please sort this out!! I have a fast connection but only with skype and on 2 seperate mac computers do I have this problem. My connection speed is fine I have deleted skype on my mac air and now cannot be bothered redownloading as it is just too slow.....thinking of moving to a different VOIP provider!

SLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW speed, 500bytes/sec.

What is wrong with Skype? Installed it on android, usless, can't understand a single word the other person is saying. Same the other way arround. Tried it on 2 different androids with same result. Now installing on Win7 and the speed, well can't call that speed, 500 bytes/sec.

Same ISP, internet connection as used for Androids, but androids downloaded in a few seconds. Speedtest.net shows high speed internet connection.

10 min into download and i have 500KByte here.

After 20min download (540Kbytes) i get the message, "download finished".

When trying to run it, it says ".....it is not a 32 bit application.."..........waste of time!!!
