Skype the very popular VoIP service lets people make phone calls over the internet. Calls between two computers is free while calls to regular phones and other valued added services are charged to the user.

Skype is one of the poster boys for the freemium business model. It is a great way of showing how freemium can be used to successfully build a business.

    Can Skype handle video conference calls at this time or is there a place where we can do that for free?
