I’m ditching my landline, and moving to Skype for my phone. The reason….
Qwest (local and long distance): $63 / month x 12 months: $756/year
Skype (local, long distance, voice mail, call forwarding): $55/year
Using a USB headset, Skype sound quality is pretty good. Not quite as good as a landline, but worth the switch. Skype is currently offering $15/year package if you sign up before Jan 1st (price goes up to $30/year after that). For another $40/year Skype will give you a regular number too. I am keeping my cell phone, so I don’t have to worry too much. Nice to be able to get rid of that Qwest bill!
