One of the local computer gurus, David Atherton, who has a broadband connection with Lagunanet, uses SKYPE and loves it. It usually works quite well. There are occasions apparently when there are a lot of others on line, that the connection breaks up and is difficult to use. But usually David is quite happy with SKYPE. As I recollect he has a high-speed 512up and 512kb/sec down connection
What are the upload and download speed requirements for SKYPE, might that be the issue. As I remember you have a dialup connection with lagunanet. You might want to do a speed test at www.pcpitstop.com to see what your upload and download speeds are. I have a backup lagunanet dialup connection and when I do speed tests I normally get 28kb/sec down and 32kb/s up (that's right. I get a faster upload speed)
So yes SKYPE works with a broadband lagunanet connection, but I don't know whether it can work with a slower dialup connection.
