Right i've got a broadband connection but no phone line. There's no mobile signal out here worth mentioning so I was looking into getting voip type phone. As i've never used the service though I don't know if its any good (sound quality, reliability etc) or the costs??? Also would it be a viable alternative to a landline? Any opinions?

Tesco do one voip stunt is good.
My OHs father uses his alot to call his family abroad. Defo worth looking into.

That Vonage looks interesting but a bit expensive to set up. Forgot Tesco had their own service, better that devil than an ebay company :lol:

So next question. What equipment would I need (minimum to test it all out) and any idea how much bandwidth it uses?

If you want to try skype on a semi pay as you go service just do the following as work around:

Go into any Post Office and buy a cheap £5 phone card,

Install Skype on your pc follow the usual set-up instructions,

Add the skype buddy "ukpostofficephonecard"

Call this skype buddy, type in the code form the phone card and make uk landline calls at 3.5p/min...

see http://www.postoffice.co.uk/portal/po/content1?catId=63700719&mediaId=19800192 for pricing and add 1p to every advertised price...

Failing that look at http://www.skype.com/intl/en-gb/prices/callrates/
