eBay's Internet telephony company Skype is offering its U.S.-based users one hour of free international calling to landline phones in 30 countries around the world. (Calls to other Skype users are always free). Until June 30, 2006, U.S.-based Skype users new to SkypeOut, a product that allows Skype users to make calls from their PCs to any external phone line, can make up to 60 minutes of free calls to landline phones in countries including Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Italy, Mexico and the United Kingdom. The offer comes one month after the company announced that U.S. and Canadian-based Skype customers can make free SkypeOut calls to any landline or mobile phones in the U.S. or Canada until the end of the year.
