the only way we are going to get skype to come to new zealand is if we do not have free local calls. this is the reason why skype has not launched itself into new zealand. i did not want to say this,but it is true. can you see telecom stop giving us free local calls or can you see skype coming into new zealand with us still having free local calls?

what are your opinions?

Mind sharing with us what Skype has to do with free local calls?

Skype is in NZ. The only thing lacking is DDI/DID numbers for NZ.

It actually has nothing to do with Telecom, when Telecom was sold offshore part of the agreement was something callled the Kiwi Share which basically entitles Residential users to free local the the Government put this in place not Telecom

Some people don't know this... Some believe everything bad in telecommunications in New Zealand must be Telecom's fault.

People have very short memory. Or no knowledge of facts.

But back on topic... You can use Skype and SkypeOut in New Zealand. Are you talking about SkypeIn numbers? This is not Telecom's fault. Talk about the Number Deed to the government.

Actually, seeing te signature in the OP I am tempted to say this is a link drop post. If there's no response until a bit later it will locked and deleted.
