Can I make phone calls using GigSky?

GigSky is a data-only service, so it does not support SMS or traditional voice calls. However, there are a number of Voice over IP (VoIP) and messaging services available, such as Skype, that will enable you to send messages and make voice calls using GigSky. Please note that GigSky cannot be held responsible for the performance of third party products or services - refer to our Terms and Conditions for details.

As an approximate guide, Skype says that the following are examples of typical data usage:

  • Skype-to-Skype calls: around 750kB for one minute of calling.
  • Calls to mobile numbers or landlines: around 150kB for one minute of calling.
  • Video calls between two mobile phone devices: around 4MB for one minute of video calling.
  • Video calls between a mobile phone and a computer: around 4.5MB for one minute of video calling.
