Skype Is Cheap; In A Good Way

Posted on 4.21.2008
Voip provider Skype, an eBay subsidiary (that may eventually be spun off) has introuduced a new unlimed international calling plan for an almost criminally low $9.95 per month.

The plan allows for unlimited calls to any land-line phone in 34 supported countries, including most of Europe, plus Canada, Austraulia, Chile, China, Japan and others.

Skype has already been selling unlimited calls to the U.S. and Canada for $3 a month. It is expanding that offering with another plan, for $5.95 per month, that gives free calls to Mexico City, Guadalajara and Monterrey, and a discount on calls to other places in Mexico.

Skype said its subscribers called phones for 1.7 billion minutes in the first three months of the year, compared with 14.2 billion minutes used in computer-to-computer sessions, which are free.
