    I used skype while posted in the Middle East to call Australia, the states etc and have no complaints. Most of the western expats where I worked used skype, again with minimal complaints.

    I have used the Comcast internet phone(in a bundle) for about two years now with no real complaints. Due to the rual area I am living in the old cable lines are a little lacking at times giving a few seconds of static. But I have loved it so far and the static I hear is a very rare occurance.

    Have you tried Skype?

    Skype can get you rates of about $.02/minute, no other charges (telecom taxes, for example). Requires a high-speed connection for good results.

    We are about 400 miles from "home" and my LOVELY WIFE is killing me on the long distance.
    Cell Phone Coverage is next to nothing inside the house, so Heaven forbid she step out on the front porch to make a call on it.
