Download speed Down

In my last post i mentioned a quite unexpected increase in downloads of the Skype client, and gave some possible explanations for it. However, i think now the explanation should be looked for somewhere else, and i didn’t find any …

Why? Well, as sudden as the increase started, as sudden it disappeared, look on the Graph below. The slope of the (blue) download curve did bent down dramatically on May 10.

On May 9 the new Skype version 3.2 was released (out of beta version) so even this is no explanation, because here we should expect a surge in downloads, as a lot of people would and have upgraded now!

We are again at download speeds around 500 downloads per minute. What happened?
