Are you or anyone you know using 'Skype'? Apparently, Skype to Skype calls are free! Is it too good to be true? Feedback welcome.
Well what do u know, I goes into work today and what was the topic of conversation? Skype!
The work colleague in question was going on about how great it is. Free crystal clear if the receiving person is on Broadband and has Skype too.
Something like 0.01 pence per minute if you call a landline.
I've added a 'Skype' option in your UserCP enabling you to put your Skype name in your profile.

Suddenly everyone wants to offer you cheap calls
BT has announced plans to undercut Skype prices on its own VoIP service, and will launch a new service in February combining its two existing VoIP offerings.
The telecoms giant claimed that it will undercut Skype on 50 of the most popular international calling destinations.
The move would mark a distinctly higher profile for BT's VoIP services despite concerns from analysts that it will undercut its fixed line business.
Meanwhile Yahoo has announced that it will also undercut Skype by charging just one to two cents a minute in 180 countries.
The new version of Yahoo Messenger for text, voice and video communications will be introduced in the next few days.
