Skype is down, offline, dead!!! The incredible outage of dicember 2010!!!

Posted by Dmitrij Ivanov on December 23, 2010

No Skype
Yesterday we had two different troubles with the Skype connection. During all the afternoon Skype had disconnected multiple times when I talking with people or simply using chat functionalities. At 16.00 GMT Skype was definetely dead and there was no way to connect. So what is happend to Skype? Now, at 1.00 GMT, Skype is still cannot connect to the server and few informations are available about the reasons. It seems to be a worldwide massive outage day.The last outage was in the far 2007. It was a bad day for EBay.

The enormity of Skype going down is appreciated when you consider that last year it accounted for 12 percent of the world’s international calling minutes.

The official blog reports this communication. The official tweet of Skype says “Some of you may have problems signing in to Skype – we’re investigating, and we’re sorry for the disruption to your conversations” . You can stay tuned on other twitter comments using #Skype keyword. You also can check this link for new announcements.
