Hi

I had SkypeOut. But it was not really worth having. That was last year.

Has it Improved..?

Will Skypeout ever be worth while.. ?


Cheers Possum

The quality of SkypeOut calls to other NZ landline or mobile phones seems to vary a lot in quality. Somestimes it's OK, other times it's terrible. Using Woosh doesn't help either since the latency is higher than ADSL or cable.

Well, Skype is a great service, but quality is really not its strenght. If you need a cheaper voice solution with good voice quality then you need SIP-based VoIP services.
