Internet calling service Skype SA was experiencing an outage Wednesday, though it was not immediately clear how many of its millions of users were affected. The company said in the afternoon that it was fixing the problem and it expected service would return in several hours.
"As Skype relies on being able to maintain contact with supernodes, it may appear offline for some of you," Parkes said.
Parkes said Skype is building "mega-supernodes" to fix the problem, but that it could take a few hours before service returns and even longer before some features _ such as group video calling _ start working again.
