I dont know if this is in the right place or not but please move it if it is not.
My question spans a few things so not sure where to place this.
I have friends/relatives/online gaming friends around the world who I Instant Message through Skype but would like to add video and actually see who I am chatting to.
I have only been using Skype for about a month on my mobile phone and I am getting hammered. Too many friends...small amount of data allowance.
I have connected the mobile up to my plusnet router wirelessly but holding a phone for ages wears out my little old arm LOL
I have a fast computer wired to the router sat in the corner and that got me thinking
Heres my questions
Will Skype to Skype accounts for international IM and video calls down the wired broadband be expensive to do for video calls?
I am on Plusnet Extra Fibre 250 with 250 gigs of allowance but was wondering if the video calls were in or outside the allowance and I would get charged loads for it. ?
My friends at work said for free international skype to skype calls to connect my phone up to my wifi at home and do it like that. But checking my mobile phone my data allowance has been eaten up incredibly quickly in a few days.
Can I buy a PCI wireless card, install it in my desktop computer, headphones webcam etc and when I want to do a video call...disconnect from wired and connect through the wireless card ?
Is this the best and most economical way of doing it for international calls?
Are there any drawbacks?
Is there a difference between doing video calls through wired and wifi on a desktop PC
Which is the best most economical...way you would do this
Remember I am calling countries overseas.
If I have to go up to the nect package which is unlimited I will if it is going to eat into my data.
Any help or guidance would be much appreciated
