If you upgrade to Skype 5.2+ all you need to do is select “Call” on the menu bar, then “Call Technical Info” and it will show you bandwidth usage in the Call Technical Info window. If you are using an older version of Skype and don’t want to update for some reason, you just have to go into Tools>Options>Advanced>Advanced Settings>Display Technical Info. Click “save”, and then just follow the same steps as in Skype 5.2.

"To see how much bandwidth a video call is using, you must first enable technical information to be displayed during calls.
To do this:

Sign in to Skype.
In the Tools menu, select Options...
Under Advanced, select Advanced settings.
Tick Display technical info during calls and click Save.
Important: if you are using Skype 5.2 or above, this function is switched on by default and you can go straight to the next steps below."
