Skype Out

January 28, 2006

Update: I take it back. The issue was that the location was defaulted to US and so it must have been routing it through the US servers. Changing it to Australia fixed the problem.

I’ve been using skype for a while now. Skype to Skype it works fairly well. Recently I tried skype-out. Sadly the quality of skype-out has been crap. I’m not sure what it’s like calling the US but calling within Australia has been very poor quality. To make it worse the call usually cuts out after a short time making the whole thing pretty unusable for any realistic usage.

I was recommended firefly as an alternative. The result is much better. Not perfect but quite reasonable. Certainly if you’re in Australia I could recommend it as being a better alternative to Skype.
