Skype.exe in task manager

if I set this to above priority- would it help in calls not dropping so often?

Whats your speedtest result?

No, sounds like a connection issue.

Try if you want though. Can't hurt.

your upload speed is s*** tbh

geek_rz_zone, Dec 14, 3:01 pm

Nope, probably on a plan with 128Kbps upload. Anyway OP, test on a server closer to your recipient as they have done with their test.

I'm with Xnet. Just recently (up until a week ago, for around four weeks) I was having a shed-load of drop outs on Skype and my connection was pretty poor. Now, I'm not getting any. IMO, the problem WAS Xnet (I did call them and they did advise that their network was overloaded and would be corrected within the month. It was) and this has happened before with them. It's only once every so often, and there's nothing I can o about it until they arrange for more capacity with Telecom. IMO. I use a good 40GB a month on Skype calls and believe me, it is frustrating when calls constantly drop. Now, everything's perfectly fine and my line speed is good too.

Who is your ISP?
