The same thing happened to me recently. It seems any web address with the word Skype gets blocked.
I found a site that I was able to download a slightly older version and it works.

Retired and loving it

Not having that problem when I hit their website.

Did you try deleteing all cookies and temp files?

I'm running the latest version of Skype and it's working just fine (through my VPN). Made a call to a phone number only yesterday. What version of Windows are you running?

Are you in AC right now, or in the states (or other)?

The skype website itself will be blocked if you are trying to access it from Belize. (so will the skype service)
I think you can do a search on the forums if you want to know more about the drama.

Best thing to do to get around this is to either subscribe to a VPN which runs about 50usd per year, or use a free service like Hotspot Shield

I use hotspot and although it may be annoying at times with its advertisements, you can't beat free.

I thought that might be what his problem was. But didn't know there was "Drama".

ooVoo is another free alternative you could try.

AT least BTL has stopped blocking access to the Hotspot website. For a while there you couldn't even access it from Belize.

Just checked and they are blocking access to the Skype site.
