I understand skype is bad on bandwidth.  But it doesn't make any sense to me how I can have 900 kpbs average download and still can't hear voices coming in. Or how I can't stream a one meg file thru windows media or real player. 

I am in Afghanistan and the satellite services on the base performs better with skype and streaming files than the more expensive satellite services provided by the retailers.  But I can surf the web faster with the commercial providers.  A trade off would be nice.

hello,

it also depends on your up-link connection if it is stable without any delays. please contact me on a.madi@skycomsat.com with the requested capacity so we can offer you on W6-C12.

Well then I must have a horrible connection. Because I have  a constant 80 kpbs uplink and people still can hear me.  How much dang capacity do you nead to pass voice?
