Hello ,

I beleave it would be a great idear if giffgaff could add skype some where along the lines . Abit like 3 have got ? It would be a great thing and it could bring more people over to giffgaff from 3.


( i mean free skype , not pay for skype like skype alredy offer.)

Hi Jamie, this idea is still under future review, but I'll keep you posted when it hits our roadmap!

Whilst giffgaff might be able to do something with other providers, which has been mentioned on other threads, I wouldn't foresee it with Skype


However, although posts above indicate that both 3 and Skype seem to be happy, it is a potential loophole, which enables some people to have free use of a mobile platform without either of them making any money, and pay a separate provider for calls at much lower tariffs than either of theirs, even free, using a fraction of a penny worth of data per call.

I support the basic notion of this idea. Let me explain.


I mainly communicate using the internet. My phone calls are in the single digits each month. But I use Skype much more. Usually to dial in to teleconferences in the USA, or call friends in Holland. Gifgaf *could* consider connecting VoIP (Skype thing) and mobile / landline calls. It seems to me that this is especially true for the internationals (like me) who have friends and contacts everywhere. And routing a distant call over the internet is often much cheaper.  I would prefer to have a good service and pay for it, rather than rely on low bandwidth-low priority routing of calls. Right now I pay Skype I think £9.95/month, so that gives some baseline.
