August 1, 2008, Newsletter Issue #104: No Such Thing as Free VOIP?

Tip of the Week

Before you get too excited about free VOIP services, keep this in mind. There are very, very few free VOIP services that offer calls outside their own network. Most of these "free" services will charge you for any call that goes to anyone outside the network. Skype is a good example. If you want to talk to other Skype users, no problem. Use their network, your computer, and they make you look at ads while you talk. Go outside the Skype network, however, and you're going to pay at least five cents a minute for calls. So before you make a big commitment to Skype or any other free VOIP network, think carefully about the limitations.
