Yahoo offers a comparable tools to Skype: in fact, it looks like a copy of the Skype model. Yahoo Voice offers free PC-to-PC calling and low rates for PC-to-phone.

Another option is Sightspeed---I used them at my last job and the quality was good.

There are other free alternatives like Google Talk, I've always found the voice quality to be great as long as you have good internet connection. Its available at: http://www.google.com/talk/ . Calls can be done from with the googlemail account as well if you don't want to use the google talk software.

I suggest you www.voipdiscount.com

You will be able to call even to landline phones for free. You just recharge of 10 euros once and then for 120 days u will call to France landline phones for free. And it works also PC-to-PC like Skype.
