The connection that one family member has out in Spain is,according to - click here - Up : 57kb/s and Down : 64kb/s
So,is this fast enough for Skype?
Secondly a forum search came up with a recommendation for headsets - click here . Having looked at various sites it seems you can spend anything from 99p to £99 and more for a headset.Can anyone comment?
I use a Logitech Quickcam 9000Pro which has a built-in mic, to video chat with my son who lives in Lanzarote (I am in UK). My son uses a Quickcam 4000 and separate mic. Results are excellent. I don't know what my sons' ADSL speeds are.
Personally I don't like headsets, preferring instead to use normal PC speakers and a separate mic.
