Please can someone tell me roughly how much download usage is involved for a one hour Skype video call.
And if you switch off the video during the call and use speech for say half the call does that make a great saving of download usage?
Last question, I've heard that if you leave Skype on in a standby situation, awaiting calls, that download usage is still being used. I have a 40GB download allowance per month. So was wondering how this will be affected by skype.
I take back my last comment about the negligible use on standby Read this and you will see that it is about 1.3Gb per month. Personally I only have Skype running when I am expecting to receive or wanting to make a call.
Thanks for your replies. I was wondering if you know anything about gmail video calls if they work as peer 2 peer basis as skype does. Had a look but could not find info.
Your second reply made interesting reading.
