Skype Logo, a famous Internet phone service, have stated that it will be introducing new plans for domestic calls in 24 countries, including France, Germany, Japan, South Korea, Spain, and the United Kingdom. What is exciting about the new plan, Skype Pro, will be that the users will be paying a monthly subscription along with a connection fee, but will not be charged at a per-minute basis. An executive of Skype have stated that the monthly pricing will be less than $6.50 USD, but that this is a mere estimate and nothing has yet been finalized. Stefan Oberg, a GM for Skype Telecoms added that the connection fee will be 5 cents in a case where a user calls a domestic numbered mobile phone.

Skype Pro is also said to offer free voice mail which costs $19.40 per year as of. Not only that, but it is said that subscribers will also be given a discount on a “SkypeIn” number, which currently costs $38.80.

With the launch of Skype Pro, Skype have also said that it will be reducing the current per-minute international rates to 2.2 cents for calls to so far, eight countries, which include the United States along with Malaysia and Czech Republic.
