I have had both sattelite and now wireless internet and I can make 
limited use of skype but the calls have a time lag. I did use Gizmo with 
dial up internet a while ago and that was actually fairly usable even on 
dialup, but try getting your family who think skype is the bees knees to 
switch to something else...

generally speaking internet service including voip outside of metro 
areas (and I include the larger country towns in that term too) is abysmal.

the governments 'broadband guarantee' has been a large waste of money 
directed at getting country people to embrace sattelite internet, by 
fooling them into thinking it is as good and as cheap as adsl in the city.
