Alongside rumors that Ebay would be selling Skype… to… maybe… Google? Skype, who had a pretty successful first quarter is announcing that starting today anyone can sign up for unlimited calling to landlines in any of 34 countries across the world for $9.95 per month and also includes unlimited calling to U.S. landlines and cellphones.
International cellphone calls are restricted to Canada, Hong Kong, and Singapore.
This is a darn good deal and I expect Skype to do fairly well during the recession, especially if you can get super cheap calling to nearly anywhere in the world. I know Ebay probably doesn’t want Skype but it must be worth something to somebody.
