Video Call is supposed to automatically adjust your bandwidth depending on what's available.
However, just to test - instead of using Video Call, try using webcam instead. To do that,
click the little video icon to the left of the display picture and choose 'Show my webcam'.
On their display picture, choose 'View this contacts' webcam'. Once these requests have been
established, you can then go ahead and turn on the start the Audio separately (assuming you
want audio). See if that yields better results.
