SkypeOut: Free calls to all landlines and mobile phones within the US and Canada

This has been for a little while now, but I anyway want to report about it.

"The Whole World Can Talk For Free". Now this can be taken literally when it comes to USA & Canada, because Skype announced Free calls to all landlines and mobile phones within the US and Canada.

So let's quote them a bit:

"If you’re in the US or Canada, you can use SkypeOut to call any landline or mobile number in both the USA and Canada for free.

If you’re in the US or Canada and calling any other country, OR if you’re in any other country and calling landline or mobile numbers in the US or Canada, the standard SkypeOut rates apply.

Of course, Skype-to-Skype calls continue to be globally free, so no changes there.

See also the campaign FAQ.

Isn't this great? Unfortunately I am not living in USA or Canada :'(

Wow,it's all free?
Weird,I've never heard of Skype before. I guess they're not as big as Verizon or Cingular/AT&T. I haven't seen any commercials or billboards yet. Is it new?

Huh! Skype is the most known voice chat client, since it was the first that brought voice chat in a new unheard quality as of back then (3 years ago). SkypeIn & SkypeOut for connecting to normal phone lines where extra features that were implemented some long time afterwards.
