The bottom line is this: I live in Moscow and very much in touch with the person from South Korea. As South Korea is at a distance even greater than 6K miles, ping and the speed is horrendous, so Skype, if I'm not mistaken, holds the calls for the peer-to-peer drops off, the quality is terrible, and in the evening — God forbid slideshow!
Already tried many options, such as google chat, Logitech Vid, etc.
What you can advise the services of video chat 1 on 1, I'll even consider paid options.
What you need:
1) High quality pictures.
2) Decent speed, taking into consideration location servers.
Thank you in advance, share your experiences, comrades.
I'm afraid that put here not in distance but in quality of the network (possibly on the far end). From America to Russia is not closer than from Korea, but the video goes without problems.

Disable video and acceptable to communicate with the person, say, from Tanzania. In this case, both on the mediocre 3G.
The video is just a habit really, and not a necessity.

With good TV channels from Thailand to Russia get an acceptable picture on Skype.
What you and he had the Internet?
If it sits on 3G or adsl just have him change the connection type.
Also helps to turn off the downloading of porn in torrent.

You can try to lift in the middle of vhost with asterisk and vmukti.
But as I said above, the problem is likely in the bad channel.
