I tried VOIP about 2 years ago with the Tesco network, and wasn't impressed. Recently friends and family have convinced me to try Skype on my netbook, and technology seems to have come a long way. I am not dumping my regular phone just yet, but I am impressed. So I was interested to see the following offer when checking out through PayPal today. (Okay, the attraction is free calls, but with their low cost subscription service/PAYGcalls worldwide to landlines and mobiles, this might be of use to some.)
From the PayPal website, Offers section...
