"When a computer crashes there are 2 kinds of people. Those that say "Sure glad I backed up yesterday and those that say "Oh no, what about all my pictures, documents and emails"

An inexpensive solution to high phone bills.


It has been over a year since we have reviewed Skype. The information here might be outdated, the pricing might be incorrect, but it should still prove helpful. If anything Skype has become better. It may never completely replace the telephone but it is fun. The cost vary from free to inexpensive. Well worth investigating. We use Skype for many of our business calls and have noticed a savings in our phone cost.

We hope to do an updated page on Skype in the near future.

What is Skype?

Skype is a computer program that lets you make free calls to other Skype users, anywhere in the world.

You make the calls from computer to computer, the quality is like being in the room with the person. You use your computer speakers and a microphone, but the quality is better with a head set.

If you can't get used to the head set you can buy a Skype Phone. 

It just works - and it works well

The quality of the call is great. It is like being in the same room. 

It is easy to use

It doesn't cost anything

If you sign up for Skype Out you can use your computer to make calls to regular phones, both landline and mobile. You use your computer, but you ring your friends on their telephone. Perfect for keeping in touch with your non-computer friends back home. The rates are attractive, bound to save you money. To use Skype Out you simply open an account with Skype with as little as $16.00.

Caution: as good as Skype is it can not replace your standard telephone. It can not be used to make 000 calls, and you would have no phone should your computer crash. You must keep your standard phone. Just give it a rest on the expensive calls.

Skype In

Do you have heaps of relatives in a different state. Buy a Skype In number. You purchase a number in a telephone exchange near your friends. Your friends simply ring that number, you answer the call on your computer. Their cost is the cost of a local call. Skype Out numbers available in many overseas countries including the UK and the USA.


We would like to take credit for discovering Skype, but we were told about it by a number of our customers. They love it We love it. I think you will too.
