Users of Skype all over the world have today been experiencing sever problems with the VOIP service. This is the first major Skype outage since 2007, and will cause major embarrassment for the company just as its fortunes appeared to be going in the right direction.
Users of the service have been taking to the social networks to vent their frustrations at the issues their are facing as a result of the interruption in Skype service. Many users have reported problems logging into their account, and even once they manage to log in, many calls have been dropping mid-conversations. This is a course of great concern for the Skype management, who will have many engineers on the case attempting to fix the currently unknown issue. A message posted on the Skype Twitter page said – “engineers and site operations team are working non-stop to get things back to norm.” For all the Skype users we can just hope this is sooner rather than later. The longer it lasts the more of a PR disaster it will be for the company.
