Skype has announced that until the rest of this year it’s customers will be able make free calls within the US. You have to download its client and you can then make PC-to-Phone calls for free. Its a marketing campaign to boost their client base. Since they have deep pockets [thanks to Ebay.com] its our chance to take advantage of this free offer.
Its especially useful for friends and family outside the US. They can now call us on our land-lines or cellphones at no cost to them.
