How much Broadband data does Skype use? Can anyone indicate how much it would use in say 30 minutes.
New tennant uses it and my broadband usage is much more than before he moved in.

Cheers

I read somewhere that it uses approx 49 MBs per hour. But don't take that as gospel.

Yeah it varies depending on your speed, amongst other things, it'll try and dynamically increase / decrease the usage. Unfortunately there's no hard and fast law about what it's going to use.

49MB an hour sounds about right for a g711 uncompressed SIP call, I know that it can use both more and less than that though, especially if video chatting.
