I skype my kids in Kapiti on a weekly basis and I've noticed in the last 3 weeks quality has declined to the point of it looking like it's out of minecraft. We've never had issues before and I have telstra cable in Aussie. I eliminated our end buy signing out and switching to my mobile carrier during todays call. Using mobile data here to call them has never looked this bad either.

I have asked the ex to reboot her router and cable modem.

Anyone else having issues?

I was skyping my sister in Brisbane (Telecom Broadband --> Telstra ADSL) and the call quality was alright, but did notice a drop of quality compared to when I normally do it.

Slightly OT but I use Google Hangouts over Skype all the time since it means more than two parties can be on the call. We Google my daughter in San Francisco while I, my wife and son are all on our own PC's on the call. This is on TCL cable  (Warp 100Mbs) and it's been fine but I recently added Telecom xDSL and haven't tested that yet.
