SkypeSkype is the Global P2P Telephony Company that is changing the telecommunications world by offering consumers free, superior-quality calling worldwide.

“I knew it was over when I downloaded Skype,” Michael Powell, chairman, Federal Communications Commission, explained. “When the inventors of KaZaA are distributing for free a little program that you can use to talk to anybody else, and the quality is fantastic, and it’s free – it’s over. The world will change now inevitably.”

Fortune Magazine, February 16, 2004

“The idea of charging for calls belongs to the last century. Skype software gives people new power to affordably stay in touch with their friends and family by taking advantage of their technology and connectivity investments.”

Niklas Zennström, CEO & Co-founder of Skype

Skype — the Global Telephony Company

Skype aims to delight you by offering free global telephony, to make unlimited, superior quality voice calls via its next-generation peer-to-peer software. Skype’s mission is providing a simple, reliable and friendly communications tool that just works. We aim for people to communicate with friends, families, and colleagues more flexibly, more cost effectively, and with better sound quality than ever previously imagined.

The rapid proliferation of broadband, plus Skype, gives anyone around the world real choice in communications. No longer beholden to one company, choice allows pioneers the option to make free, unlimited calls using an Internet connection. The power of the Skype network increases with the numbers of Skype users making free calls over the Internet. Once you download our free software, tell your friends.

Skype is promoting further adoption of high-quality connectivity, and works with world class telecommunications companies that share the vision to provide better ways for people to communicate. Skype is working hard and expanding to new platforms, including mobile devices and handsets. Soon you’ll be Skyping at home, in the office and on the road.

Skype calls require a PC microphone and speakers, or an affordable PC headset available at electronics retailers worldwide. Skype is simple to install regardless of your PC environment and will set up with no server or workstation configuration. Skype works behind most firewalls and gateways without providing new security risks. Skype calls are encrypted for your security, and we maintain a strict privacy policy.

Internet telephony is in its infancy and Skype will lead the innovations forward — beyond what we can imagine today.

OMGN Editor Note:  We've found Skype to be a very useful gaming communication software. Skype has a great deal of features, but the most impressive feature of the software if that it's free and very easy to use and download.  There are a good many communication services out there, but Skype bring a high power and quality to the gaming world, even if it was not at first intended for it.
