having trouble with Skype - sending message really slow

When I try to send a message using the Skype App for Windows 10, it's being RE-E-E-E-ALLY super slow at sending them.

Here is a screenshot:

It just sits there with the blue circle (to the right of the message) going round and round and round. For like, 5 or 10 minutes. Sometimes it never does send.

so.... I tried with the new Web version of Skype. That works even worse.  I can't even see my contacts when I log in there. Here is a screenshot of that:

Please help. I already tried reinstalling the app, to no avail.

P.S. I already tried to log in with this Skype account on a different computer - a computer which I know works fine with Skype. Funny thing is... it's super slow on this other computer too.

However, it seems to indeed work on the persons phone.

Very odd.

Skype has encountered a problem and their engineers are fixing them now.
