Skype Introduces Free Calls to Traditional Landlines and Mobile Phones in the US and Canada

From Skype:
Skype®, the global Internet communications company, today announced that all US and Canadian-based Skype customers can now make free SkypeOut™ calls to traditional landline and mobile phones in the US and Canada. Previously, Skype users in both countries were required to pay for Skype calls from their PCs to traditional telephones. Free SkypeOut calls to the US or Canada will be available to US and Canadian-based Skype users until the end of the year.

Call me!
Skype is already pretty cheap, but now it's free (at least in the US and Canada.) My guess is that free will draw some more people to check it out. My next guess is that they will find the voice quality of Skype to be pretty amazing. Once you have provisioned a good computer and internet connection for yourself, Skype is better than most cell phones. The calls I have made via SkypeOut are not even noticed by my callers, well except for the bizarro caller id number it presents.
