The big thing about Skype is calls to other Skype accounts all across the world are free. Also, the sound quality is meant to be good, much better than previous free or cheap internet telephony providers. If you have a Skype account leave your handle in the comments. My handle is “taheny”. All I need now is a headset and I’m set.
PS: interesting and disheartening to see the UAE has blocked Skype’s website.
