    New Skype All Inclusive Packages 29th Apr 08 at 5:40 PM
    What's the deal?

    Skype, the internet telephony provider has launched some very competitive all inclusive call packages. These allow you to make calls using your computer to someone on a normal phone line. These are especially good for people who make lots of daytime or international calls.

    New to Internet Telephony

    You can read a full guide to how it works and what software you need in the full Voip: Completely Free Calls Via The Web Guide.

    All you need is to sign up for an account, download the software and grab either a headset or a cheap internet phone. Even better is, you don't need to tie yourself into to any hefty contracts. Pay month by month as and when you need it.

    The Packages

    To see how these compare read the detailed Cheap Home Phone guide (note this will soon be updated with all these tariffs in there)
    • High daytime caller, Unlimited Country, £2.24. Sign up to the Unlimited Country package, opt for the UK and you can get unlimited calls to UK landlines. If you make more than 12 daytime calls per week, this is a good option. This is less than half the price of the cheapest normal phone equivalent.
    • High EU caller, Unlimited Europe, £3.39. Get the Unlimited Europe package for £3.39 and you get inclusive calls to 20 EU countries.
    • High international caller, Unlimited World, £7.99. If you call any of the following countries as well as the 20 EU ones above Unlimited World is the one to opt for. Australia, China, Guam, Republic of Korea, Puerto Rico, Canada, Chile, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and the USA. For example make more than 6x30 minute calls per month to an expensive destination like Chile and you're quids in.
    Three for the price of two months

    Even better until 1 June get three months for the price of two, meaning you're paying an average of £1.49 for Unlimited Country, £2.26 for Unlimited Europe or £5.33 for Unlimited World making it almost unbeatable.

    Any other good Voip packages?

    Skype has really shaken up the market with these offers. Similar providers such as Tesco internet phone and Vonage are charging around £5 for similar unlimited UK calls packages.

    Though if you spot any other good offers, please click reply and post them below.

    PS There are a number of threads on the forum discussing this alread, thanks to all the posters who have pointed it out.
