After Skype, what's next?
Most countries ban Skype as their very expensive Telecom can't compete with Skype.
I pay $70 yearly for a VPN to use the Skype occasionally to call the toll-free numbers in the USA. Due to slow broadband I have the call is almost unbearable as far as the quality of sound concerned.
Really? Most countries?? Aside from China, as mentioned above, I don't know of any other country that has done this. Can you elaborate?
Google and ya shall find!
BTW, never been to China!
I did before posting but couldn't find a huge list of countries that have banned skype. I'm thinking there's maybe a few but 'most' means more than 98, and I don't think it's anywhere near that number.
I think a lot of this has to do with Skype being encrypted. And the people's Republic of Mao Zedong doesn't much like that it can't monitor all of its citizens.
Interesting point ... my son uses Skype (no other phone available), and when he phones us usually the sound quality is atrocious (we have standard Bell landline).
