Time to call that long-lost aunt in the middle of absolutely nowhere: Skype has just announced that you can now claim a whole month’s worth of unlimited free world-wide landline and mobile calling — but only if you claim it today.
While there is a ‘fair usage policy’, it seems pretty generous. You have to be an existing Skype member and attach some sort of payment system to your account, just in case you want to use it after the month is out, but otherwise no strings are attached.
