Skype calls aren't cheap. You can make cheaper calls from your existing BT line. Use 'ratebuster' (UK = 1ppm) or 'telediscount' (Europe = 1ppm). No need to buy new equipment. If you don't have BT than you're s*****d.

How do you connect to the internet if you cancel your landline?

Broadband, virgin. I can just have broadband and cancel my phoneline now. Broadband line is seperate to phoneline.

Skype is a total waste of time, usually far cheaper rates are available elsewhere, and this ONLY works with Skype!

This usb gadget is just as big a waste of time, whatever it works with, and offers no real benefit over just plugging in headphones & mic into the sound card of any internet connected PC.

Have a look at Moneysavingexpert.com for cheap calling info. As has been mentioned, better land-line options exist, and even cheaper still, using the PC to call via VOIP, eg by using Finearea/Betamax companies such as Voipcheap.co.uk &.com offer very cheap/partly free calls to UK landline numbers, as well as cheap calls abroad.

I set up an internet connection for a friend in her flat. I gave her a PC I had made up - and she got the router with her connection.

The phone socket was in the livingroom and the computer was to go in the bedroom, so I told her to unpack and plug in the router while I connected up the PC in the bedroom.

When I had connected everything - i shouted to her to ensure everything was plugged in and switched on, and the computer connected to the net immediately.

She then walked in with the router asking which socket to plug her phone into. When I checked there were 5 open wireless networks it could connect to, and two closed.protected networks.

In theory it would be possible to check the IP with each connection then do a speed test to see when it was not being used - then use the connection from the IP that only offered unlimited bandwidth packages and it would be likely none would be any the wiser.

I remember reading about two pensioners who had their open connection used with VOIP to send a fake bomb warning.
