SAN JOSE, California, May 6 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Skype, the worldwide leader in Internet communications, just introduced a subscription plan that allows unlimited* calling from the U.S. to landlines in a single country for just $5.95/month. Among the countries individuals can select for this plan are Mexico**, Chile, Colombia, Spain and Argentina, as well as Puerto Rico. With Skype, people can cut down on their high phone bills while still staying connected to family and friends back home.
“Skype offers individuals and families the opportunity to place calls to loved ones in Latin American countries at little cost,” said Don Albert, general manager and vice president, Skype Americas. “Whether it’s letting your child talk to his grandparents on his birthday, connecting with friends who have recently moved out of the country or talking with a spouse who is traveling, you can do so easily and affordably with Skype subscriptions.”
Calling with Skype is easy: download the free software to any computer, enable the computer’s speakers and microphone and initiate a call. Skype-to-Skype calls between any of Skype’s 443 million users are free, and calls to landlines and cell phones cost very little. As connections become increasingly global, Skype allows you to stay in touch with the ones who matter the most.
Users also get free voicemail with their subscription and certain subscriptions include up to 50% off an online number, which allows people who call you to be charged the price of a domestic call, even when you are located abroad. With a subscription, you can also use other features such as call forwarding, conference calling and Skype To Go, which lets users make low-cost calls from mobiles and landline phones.
Further, with Skype subscriptions there are no hidden fees or long-term contracts and you can call anytime of the day and week.
