It goes without saying that in order to have a successful Skype deposition both/all parties must have a computer/laptop/tablet in order to participate and just one person not having access to the right equipment means the deposition can’t go forward.
Videoconferencing rates have been reduced significantly over the last several years.
That, combined with the fact that 99% of videoconferences are now conducted via IP versus ISDN, the rates can be half of what they were years ago.
Videoconference sites consistently run tests with each other to ensure nothing is wrong with their equipment or the connection in between.
Using a video chatting service offers none of this reliability.
