Re: skype

Hi steveandshaz,


As swt4ajp has stated Virgin Media do not block Skype; we do not block any ports on any connections and the problem is more likely to be either a software firewall or Skype settings problem. I've checked your connection and that also appears to be in good health.


Kind Regards,
