Skype vs Zoom

In spite of Skype being buggy, Skype turned out to be the best choice for us.
Our PostJobFree team stopped using Zoom and switched back to Skype again.

The main reasons for switching back to Skype:
1) The quality of Skype voice connection is, usually, better than Zoom's.
2) If there are issues with voice connection in Skype -- Skype shows that.
Zoom, unfortunately, tries to hide problems with voice connections and keeps silent if it cannot deliver voice signal. That turns bad problem (I know that there is a poor connection) into a very bad problem: I do NOT know if person on another end of Zoom is silent of it is a bad connection.
