You have a fiancé who has gone abroad? A friend who is studying in a different state? Parents who have gone on a cruise? Then one of the best and cheapest ways to keep in touch with them or communicate with them is by making video calls. All you need is a computer connected with fast internet service like the one offered by Time Warner Cable. They tend to be cheaper than making phone calls overseas which tends to cost a bomb. You need not wait for a time when making calls become cheap and then call your friends and relatives. All that is required for making a video call is a computer or laptop with a webcam and an internet connection.

Not only you can express your opinion, you can also give suggestions and ways to improve the particular policy.
