I’ve started thinking about alternatives to a regular phone number again lately and came back to Skype Numbers. I wonder if the increases in bandwidth have reduced the latency or if it is still so noticeable? Is it possible to give up a landline (or even a mobile line) and switch entirely to VoIP with notional landline numbers for legacy callers?
This idea reminds me a bit of the recently announced Microsoft Lync successor, Skype for Business:
As much as I love FaceTime and prefer the idea of Hangouts to Microsoft options, Skype is still a pretty decent experience and I keep coming back to it for video meetings with clients. Maybe its time to try Skype Numbers again?
What do you think?
