59 – New Internet Connection and SKYPE

For us the internet is an essential life-line, as we still do not have a fixed phone line.

For some time we had had our internet connection via a mobile phone, but often the mobile signal can be poor here, and it is not always easy to get a connection.  Finally we decided we need to find a better option, and thanks to our trusty friend and computer bod, Luca we now have a 3G device which gives us a far better and faster connection.

We have recently explored the wonders of SKYPE, through which you can phone for free to other Skype users.  Apparently you can buy credits and use it to dial any fixed or mobile phone numbers as well, at far cheaper rates than normal, so we might well check that out too. 

With a video cam and microphone we have been able to Video Chat with family and friends all around the world, which is quite amazing !!! 

Our Skype ID is:        Paul.shapcott
