I am confused here…..
There are two things I don't understand. One is why you would Skype to down load email or check the news ? I've been doing that on my Nokia for, ooh, ages. I think even an Apple thing can manage that now. The second thing is, if BT Open Zone is charging 11p / min, and you are making a Skype call, lets say to somebody in the UK, then isn't it going to be a damn sight cheaper just to, you know, pick up the 'phone and make a call ? And, isn't there now an incentive /not/ to make the data flow 'fast' ? Per minute means more revenue for somebody of there is a bottle neck and you are just sat there waiting, and waiting, and waiting and waiting……….
