Re: Latency increases when Skype video turned on

Turning on Skype video would increase the amount of bandwidth being used compare to voice-only. I think that what happened was that there was network congestion which increased the TCP-IP pauses. This increase in pauses / gaps in the transmission was interpreted as latency. You are probably correct regarding servers being the culprit....I suspect that my Skype traffic is being routed around around any VoIp server causing Skype traffic to be mixed in with regular downloads and other internet traffic. Since this episode, xPlornet has increased carriers to balance traffic better, so I will wait to see if this corrects the Skype problem.
