Skype-Out Will Cost $30/Year On Jan 31

Starting January 31st, 2007, Skype users placing calls to domestic numbers will pay an annual fee of $30 for unlimited usage.

The fee addition is still much less than the $25/month charged by some of its competitors, like Vonage, a service that also happens to suck fermented yak balls. — BEN POPKEN
