communications - VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol)
I am sure some people know about this already, but it would be great to hear some feedback and any problems.
VoIP is voice communications using internet connections rather than telephone companies, users can communicate computer to computer for free or computer to normal phone for about 0.017Eros per minute to most parts of the world.
The most popular system is through Skype (No I don't work for them) and they are starting to come out with mobile PDA / palm type systems.
The users really need high speed connections for it to work properly, so it might be a western country thing for a while, but I have used C to C versions and it has been great. The quality of the iChat is better, but only works btw Macs.
so if you travel the world and want to talk to people from around the world for about .017Eros / .02 US or .03 A$ per minute then this may be for you. Remember C to C is free.
I can send / post some articles if people are interested, or you can go to http://www.skype.com/.
I also want to know how people go with the mobile options and if Skype works on ISDN 128 speed and CDMA (Aust) 144 wireless speed, or any experiences good or bad. Also anybody who has used it in Sth America, NZ and Asia.
