Excellent digest of the move by Skype. I think it's inevitable that as the Internet matures, infrastructure players like Skype will become invaluable to the entire planet.

Hi, it's therefore natural to think about the business model. 30$/y is 2.5$/month. Assuming wholesale termination rates on mobile are 0.1$/mn, Skype margin will be negative if the customer calls mobile more than 25mn/month.

Is it silly to suspect skype dealing a revenue sharing plan with mobile operators (who in various countries US, Canada, China, India, South America, bill the called customer, unlike Europe where the caller pays all )?
Thanks for your thoughts

I have enjoyed using VOIP technology as a Vonage customer. Still, I like Skype better but don't use it as often since it isn't able to completely replace the home telephone yet.

Vonage's Click2Call is a handy feature that dials my numbers for me. I expect Skype will have a higher profile when they offer this service through Google and Yahoo next year.
