Skype number issues

I started using skype numbers in 2015. This worked perfectly for years.

Over the past few years I've started having problems, especially with the Skype Android app.

There were times when the line was terrible, then occasionally the call wouldn't come through at all and I'd notice a missed call.
I remember switching to the Skype Lite app which worked better for some time.

Lately, Skype on Android is just terrible. The majority of the time, the calls come through and the caller seems to be on speaker, which is alright, but they can't hear me at all.
I try toggling the speaker icon - doesnt work.
I have to end the call and call from my mobile.
I've gone through the settings and don't see anything that may help improve the experience.

When I am in my office, I have calls coming through my Windows computer, and that works fine.

Major issues though when I have to take calls through my mobile.

I've tried installing Skype Business, that won't allow me to log in though.

Any ideas on getting the Android app working better.

Otherwise I need to look at moving to a different VOIP solution that will give me "landline" numbers.
