    I've been reading back through old posts and the results are conflicting.

    Does Skype (or other VoIP programs) work on the network in the Aber halls? What are the restrictions, if there are any?

    Yeah it works, I've used it, it can just be quite temperamental. Skype has a dynamic port range which means some people can't get it work, but it is easily changed in the options.

    From what i remember there is a function that will not work, but that only reduces the quality of calls a little and does not stop it working altogether.

    It worked for me when I was in Alexandra Halls, but it can be a bit hit and miss. Some days it worked fine, others I struggled to keep a connection, but I am not sure whether that was my laptop or the internet.
