SkypeOut Free Within US and CanadaMay 17th, 2006
(Those not familiar with Skype and VOIP may want to review my previous post on the subject.)
For the rest of the year, SkypeOut (computer-to-phone) calls are free as long as both the computer and the phone are in the US or Canada. I’m not sure how useful this will be, as most cell phones have free long-distance—Skype’s primary selling point is cheap international calls.
