Skype continues to disrupt. With 16.7 million downloads, they are now preparing a commercial service that allows Skype users to make phone calls that terminate on land lines. They announced 4 partnerships today.
“Skype will use Teleglobe VoIPLink to support Skype’s first commercial service, SkypeOut, a soon-to-be-launched pre-pay feature that allows Skype users to call traditional phones worldwide from their Skype application.” (Business Wire)
Skype is also partnering with Level 3 communications for IP-based voice termination service.
I still think Google should acquire Skype. What a combination that would be!
