Skype Continues to Drive Down Phone Tariffs

On June 21, Skype said its U.S.-based users can have one hour of free international calling to landline phones in 30 countries around the world.

Skype recently gave its North America-based customers free calls to other U.S. or Canadian landline phones.

This kind of move is quickly helping Skype build its North American presence. It’s bringing pressure on other voice carriers, especially VoIP services. The overall effect is to hasten the death of long-distance telephone charges.
