Do you have some math to back that up?

I use skype to make international calls over my Three mobile data

For example, assuming 5GB total transfer a month, for $34.95 (just
pulling figures out of thin air here) and assuming 64kbyte/sec
transfer for skype voice, I get 81920 seconds, or 1365 minutes.
Thats 2c a minute. That isn't bad for making an international
phone call. :)
