Skype - Internet telephony app with free LD calls
Authored by: mactechsUK on May 23, '06 12:44:37AM

Guys, can I direct your interest to the excellent Gizmo project instead. It uses an open protocol, SIP, instead of the proprietary system that Skype uses and unlike Skype, it doesn''t use YOUR bandwidth to transfer other peoples calls.
Skype are a bit dodgy, if you know what I mean.

Use an open SIP based VoIP, don't give the monopoly to Skype.

I use sipgate.co.uk for my VoIP calls, because I too have had problems with Skype in the past (and I don't like them as a company)

Sipgate is ideal for me because, as I am based in the UK, it gives you a proper, geographical number (not one of the new 05 numbers being used for VoIP) so people have no idea that they are not calling a traditional land line.
