Unlimited calls to Finland and Israel now included in subscriptions
Update: Our calling subscriptions have been updated to include Moscow, St Petersburg, Buenos Aires and Córdoba (Argentina) – please refer to the more recent blog post for the latest information.
When we launched our subscriptions back in April, we had always planned to increase the number of countries included. And today, we’re happy to announce the first two new members of our unlimited calling club: Finland and Israel (finishing 22nd and 9th respectively in the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest).
This is great news for existing subscribers, as Skype’s subscriptions now offer even better value — and is very exciting for people who make calls to Israel and Finland on a regular basis.
Unlimited World — €6.95–8.95/month ex. VAT
Unlimited World subscriptions now include calls to all landlines in Finland and Israel — if you’re on the Unlimited World subscription, you can now make unlimited calls to landlines in Finland and Israel for no extra charge.
Unlimited Europe — €3.95/month ex. VAT
Similarly, Unlimited Europe subscriptions also now include calls to landlines in Finland.
Unlimited Country — €2.95–3.95/month ex. VAT
Both Finland and Israel can now be picked as calling destinations for Unlimited Country subscriptions too, which offer unlimited calls to landlines in those countries specifically.
Prices vary depending on features available in your home country and the local currency used.
Also available in the Business Control Panel
If you use the Skype Business Control Panel (and if you don’t, why not give it a try) you can now purchase subscriptions for your colleagues and employees. Scott’s post over at the Skype for Business blog has all the details.
The not-so-small print
With all of these subscriptions, you pay a single flat fee, with no hidden costs or connection charges for calls included in the subscription. You can make calls whenever you want — at any time of the day, on any day of the week, and you can cancel the subscriptions at any time, too — we hate long contracts as much as you do
Of course, Skype continues to offer its Pay As You Go option. You can buy Skype Credit and call whoever you want, whenever you want, at very low rates.
