More on Skype

Posted Feb 03, 2005 in Technology.

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.

    Well, then get online in about half an hour. I'll have time to demonstrate the awesome quality :)
