SkypeIn goes out

Users unobtainable

The essential guide to IT transformation

SkypeIn users are complaining of calls not coming in, with callers getting an unobtainable tone.

The scale of the problem, and how long it's going to persist, isn't know, but users are reporting calls not being connected with no explanation and little response to on-line fault reports.

It seems the lessons of previous outages haven't sunk in, with users still relying on Skype for their business needs. As one poster puts it:

"This is my main business line and like others its costing me real money, Will skpe help me pay my mortgage at the end of the month ! I doubt it"

It would be callous to suggest that depending on a real telco would have been a better idea, especially as the traditional telcos don't seem to be providing a much better service these days.

Skype tell us they are investigating, and hope to have an update soon, but as least we didn't get an unobtainable number when we called them, so parts of their network are obviously working.®
