Do you just call using your mic or webcam (video call) also? How much bandwith are you putting out?

Well looking at those results suggest you have an excellent internet line, so you should have no problems at your end provided you have sufficient bandwidth. You can check your bandwidth at http://www.speedtest.net/ if you wish. If your bandwidth is sufficient then it would suggest the other person has a poor internet line so your conversation is suffering from jitter.

Any questions - feel free to ask.

It could be yahoo messenger or how you installed it maybe it missed something or a file is corrupt. I would reinstall or atleast update and also check my hardware (mic, headset etc.) and make sure its updated.

Yahoo messenger shouldn't be causing any issues but you could use Skype (www.skype.com) instead to see if that works any better. Skype is free but is designed especially for chatting.
