Haven't tried it, but I would think 512Kb/sec up and down.

You would also need a plan that has a faily high data cap - depending on how much you plan to use Skype for, because from experience Skype voice on its on at 64kb is extremly annoying.

3gigs should do for moderate use.

Broadband was slow here for a long time - 256 kbps. It worked but was very jerky. Could see heads moving but not lips move and it was very low res. We now get close to 2000 kbps and it is much better.

Use it to keep in touch with daughter in the UK.
