    Anybody here use VOIP (Skype etc..)

    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?

    I am using vonage! Its really good and worth for money and better than these land lines. If you go by refrence and quidco you get many benefits.

    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?

    how you got bb without a phone line?, some sort of local wireless setup?

    i wondered why my bandwidth counter had shot up

    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//ww…192 for pricing and add 1p to every advertised price...

    Failing that look at ]http//ww…es/
