"No more skype from internets cafes!!! is this possible!!!

This is soo bad....so much for freedom of speech, which they certainly don't have.

Skype from internet cafes is now "off limits

A friend of mine was trying to fill in an online form at one such cafe but couldn't concentrate for the two people on either side talking loudly on Skype or similar. You get them in bars and restaurants too. It can be annoying!

Unfair Yes! I am not even sure that it is legal but it is Gambia after all !

I complained in the cafes about Skype users as Skype seriously downgrades what is already a poor internet facility as it prioritises over browsing. I was sitting there with no response for minutes on end while Skype users were getting instant sound and video.... infuriating !!!!! It got to the point that I would check for Skype users before going in and if there were I would go elsewhere,

I am sure the internet cafes will be fine. If people cannot Skype they will still email, Facebook chat etc.

Life just isn't fair sometimes but this The Gambia!

Agree granny. Looks like commercial use is prohibited but personal use is not.
