Skype on German e-plus 3G network for 40 Euro flat rate
Here’s something of special interest to our German readers, but cool to know for others as well.
A while back, we [announced](http://www.skype.com/company/news/2005/skype_eplus.html) cooperation with Germany’s [E-Plus](http://www.eplus.de/OnlineShop/skype/default_ws.asp) mobile network. Back then not much actually happened, but as of today, this is available to customers.
You can get an E-Plus 3G (UMTS) data package for a flat rate of 39.95 €/month. Download, surf and make Skype calls as much as you can, no extra charges. We’re not aware of many other similar flat-rate 3G packages, so it’s probably another world’s first. It obviously includes unlimited free Skype-to-Skype calls. If you want SkypeOut, you should buy [Skype Credit](http://www.skype.com/go/store). They even give you a free 3G card for your laptop with the package.
Plus, the first 5000 ones to sign up get a free Skype Starter Pack containing earbud+microphone and Skype on CD. So no more of those “I don’t have a headset” excuses. [Go check it out and sign up.](http://www.eplus.de/OnlineShop/skype/default_ws.asp)
Here are some pictures from the announcement back in September.
