SkypeOut now free in North America – 21talks

SkypeOut now free in North America

Image for the article SkypeOut now free in North America

Skype has made a major announcement today: SkypeOut is now free within the US and Canada to all landlines and mobiles, until at least the end of 2006. The free service should work for Skype on Mac, Linux, Windows.

The decision, awesomely unveiled right after this weekend commercial Mother’s Day, would certainly slash the newly announced AOL plan to give a free number to its customers, and elbow cheaper phone rates practiced for a couple of months by competitors like Gizmo and Jajah.

Jaanus from the official Skype blog precised that: “Note that if you haven’t bought any Skype Credit, your Skype client may still tell you something about needing to buy some before you can use SkypeOut. Just disregard that and place your call. It will work fine.”

Unfortunately, Skype has no plan to free SkypeOut calls to and within all other countries will continue to incur charges. We wonder if some users with anonymous IP would be able to get through the Skype localization detector.
