- What do I dial when calling America?
- Alternatives to costly overseas phone calls
- Advantages of Skype
The second advantage of Skype is that you can actually see the person you are talking to. This is a great bonus, particularly when you are talking to someone that is a long way away who you may not have seen for some time. Talking to friends and family on Skype is a lovely way to keep in contact and also talking to business colleagues on Skype can be a cost effective yet professional means of business. You can also hold conference calls where many people can be involved in one conversation and all have the ability to see each other which works well for both business and family chats.
As more and more people have access to the Internet, this is becoming a much more popular option rather than spending a lot of money on overseas phone calls.
