Skype log-in problems persist

August 18, 2007|From Bloomberg News

EBay Inc.'s Skype Internet phone and chat service was unavailable to millions of users for a second day Friday because of a software glitch, which the company's website said should be fixed within 24 hours.

"The problems have certainly not gone away," Skype spokesman Villu Arak said.

About 2.6 million Skype users were online as of 9 a.m. London time, compared with "better days," when about 8 million to 9 million people would be using the service, Arak said.

Luxembourg-based Skype notified customers of a problem Thursday after some users couldn't log in.

Downloads of Skype software were temporarily disabled, and users worldwide reported trouble logging in for a second day.
