I'm quite sure Skype is not VOIP. Skype is just a software program you run on your computer. VOIP is described in detail here (if you don't have time to read that, look at this visual representaiton.) It works and operates like a real phone, using real phones with real phone numbers whereas Skype is just a software program you use to dial numbers with a mic from your PC.
