A number of Skype users are reporting problems when logging into the Internet communication service today.
Skype has acknowledged the problem and says it is only affecting a 'small number of users,' promising a quick fix.
'We've identified the cause of the problem, and have begun to address it. If you've been affected, you should start to see improvement in the next hour or so. You shouldn't need to manually sign back in to Skype - it should reconnect automatically when it's able to do so,' Skype's Peter Parkes posted on the company's blog.
Skype's last major outage came in December of last year. Its most notable service issues came in 2007 when it was unavailable for more than a day to some users.
