Skype – Free & Paid Video & Audio Calls

Remember with a broadband connection you will also get excellent sound quality and calling from computer to computer is free.

My big tip though is to use a usb headphone microphone for improved quality.

My favorite is the Plantronics , and by using the USB mic you will notice a difference in quality.

For video try any of the Logitech video cameras.
