Skype has announced that SkypeOut is now free within the US and Canada to all landlines and mobiles, until at least the end of 2006. Standard SkypeOut rates remain in effect if you are outside of Canada and the US or calling another country. There are no changes to Skype-to-Skype calls – they remain completely free.
The offer is good until the end of 2006. Skype may or not extend the offer beyond that. We’re not quite sure yet what we will do after that. Maybe we extend the free period, maybe not. You’ll hear more about this towards the end of the year. Enjoy while you can!
