      Had forgotten that there are a few types of Internet services that have data caps. Satellite and some line-of-sight services sure do. Have not had a problem with streaming use limits with DSL or U-verse service.


      Would be hard to justify video conferencing with a mobile with that much data usage. Maybe back when there really were unlimited mobile data plans.

      If you're using a LTE laptop. tablet or netbook.

      To Jerry, , got this info from skype site.

      Here are examples of some typical Skype data usage:

      • Skype-to-Skype calls: 50kbps or around 3MB for one minute of calling
      • Calls to mobile numbers or landlines: 6-20 kbps or around 1MB for one minute of calling
      • Video calls between two mobile phone devices: 500kbps
      • Video calls between a mobile phone and a computer: 600kbps

      Why are you concerned about  computer time or data transferred during the calls? I don't know of any Internet service that charges by connect time or data amount.   RogerD

      Does anyone know how much computer time (megabytes or whatever) a 20 minute Skype call (with video) uses?
