Skype has just announced that it’s now offering new and cheaper monthly calling subscriptions to 170 countries around the world, to both landline and mobile phones.
The new range of calling plans start from as low as €0.89 ($1.09 or £0.69) per month, offering rates as low as €0.01 ($.01/£.01) per minute.
Customers have the freedom to choose 1-month, 3-month, or 12-month calling subscriptions. Also, Skype offers packages that include from 60 to unlimited minutes. A more detailed list of Skype calling plans can be seen here.
In addition to the new subscriptions, customers can also use Skype’s Pay As You Go option.
TeleGeography Research says that “calling through Skype now accounts for 12 percent of the world’s international calls.” Skype recently made deals with giant telecoms companies like Nokia and Verizon, so that percent is likely to grow quickly.
