RE: Re: [classicrv] RE: Skype phone call
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.

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
