Has anybody ever tried Skype? www.skype.com

I just signed up with an account through them and I am pretty amazed. You can make free calls to any othe Skype user. If you want to, you can call other phone numbers as well besides Skype, but of course that costs money. But I like the idea of this.

I think the internet phones are amazing. The reliability may not be as good as regular phone lines, but that will improve too. You just can't beat the cost of it though.

I definetely agree on the cost. If our DSL wasn't through our phone lines, then I would go over to this Skype. The problem is in order for me to keep the DSL I at least need a phone service. Kind of crappy!

Do you have any idea when you will be getting fiber optic in your area?

Well, my other option would be to drop my DSL through the phone company and get cable through the cable company. But they want around $60.00 a month for internet service. I currently only pay $29.95 for the DSL with 6016 kbps incoming and 786 kbps
