The subscription package is Skype Pro, which offers free calls to national landlines (after a connection fee), free voicemail, a discounted SkypeIn number and various extras for 2 Euro per month. In addition, the company is also reducing global rates for call to the Czech Republic, Guam, Hungary, Israel, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Puerto Rico and both Alaska and Hawaii in the United States.
However, on a more negative note, a connection fee is now effective for all calls. This has been set at 0.039 Euros, excluding VAT (£0.029). The Skype Unlimited Calling plan in the U.S. and Canada and the Talk for Britain campaign in the UK do not include a connection fee for national calls.
