Skype Rocks

From jkOnTheRun:

I’ll be adding this news to my growing list of “Reasons I want to ditch my land-line”. Skype just announced unlimited long-distance calling plans that they claim reaches one-third of the world’s population. On paper, that means I can call one of my three friends and talk as long as I want. Sweet! Now which one of the three will it be?

Thirty-four destination countries are included in the unlimited plans and there are no long-term commitments. However, if you nab a 3- or 12-month plan by the end of May, you’ll get a 33% discount. Hey… what is it with the “one-third” theme? Check out the monthly rates and supported countries on the Skype press release right here. Looks like the bulk of the plans average around four Euros a month, although our States-side readers have a nice deal at just under two Euros a month. From a “fair use” perspective, Skype is defining “unlimited” as roughly 10,000 minutes per month, which works out to five-hours of daily gabbing.

This gave me an excuse to add an additional Skype In number to my account. Giving me a local Silicon Valley number. Skype just keeps getting better and cheaper. For $47 a year I can call any of my clients in the U.S. for free, and talk as long as I want…. Skype is slowly becoming a REAL business tool!

    Thousands peril as Skype seemingly blocks accounts at random, with no explanation, and no response to customers.
