Skype - the bandwidth hog

From Om Malik's blog... some interesting observations, comments and links about Skype. Several of us here use Skype and have had pretty good results. Apparently though, there are some bandwidth and security issues. For some of us, these aren't serious enough issues to stop using Skype, for some others they are. Interesting food for thought, though.


  1. Indeed; if you have a fairly sizeable Internet pipe, Skype will use all it can get. My wife describes it as "peer to peer run amok", though I won't go quite that far.

    Anyone know a way to limit how much bandwidth skype can take?
