Skype kills plans to charge for 3G calling next year

Skype released their updated iOS 4 app today, but the even better news is they no longer plan to charge for 3G calling next year as they previously stated.

Peter Parkes:

At Skype, we believe that better call quality and better availability (which is achieved with an app capable of multitasking and/or making calls over 3G) lead to increased call frequency and longer calls. We also believe that the mobile world is in a period of significant change, for example, with some operators starting to move to tiered pricing models.

In light of that, we no longer have plans to charge a supplement to make calls over 3G. We’re delighted to make it easier for you to talk for even longer and do even more together using Skype.
