As promised, I wanted to give you an update on my experiences with the Skype internet telephony service. I've had the opportunity to make a couple of international calls with SkypeOut, the service that allows you to call a regular telephone. The sound quality is simply excellent, and the call cost (my calls were at €0.017 per minute) is amazingly low. I noticed a delay in the line, which was to be expected, but it was slight enough to have an insignificant effect on normal conversation.
I haven't had a voice conversation with another Skype user yet, either locally or internationally. I'll keep you posted about it.
