Skype


A proprietary protocol VOIP system built using Peer-to-peer (P2P) techniques. Free for non commercial use when using softphones (PC to PC). Offers toll access to PSTN via SkypeOut and SkypeIn. From the company that created KaZaA.

http://www.skype.com/

Licenses the Global IP Sound VoiceEngine suite of codecs and related software including their wideband codecs (double the width of regular pstn.) If you find yourself asking, "why does Skype sound so good?", the answer is primarily this wideband ability.

Quote from website:

"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."
