Skype Bundled With E-Plus 3G Service in Germany
Posted on 1-Sep-2005 23:25 | Tags Filed under: News



Skype has announced a partnership with E-Plus, Germany's third largest mobile phone network. From October, Skype software will be bundled with E-Plus' flat-rate data subscription, allowing people to gain both a high bandwidth Internet connection and free Skype calling over E-Plus' mobile network. The E-Plus network has 9.8 million subscribers.

The company says this agreement marks an important step in its global mobile strategy to move beyond the desktop.

"E-Plus is the first mobile operator to partner with Skype, taking the first step to deliver Skype's vision of making Skype available over any network, including 3G. Now anyone with an E-Plus data flat-rate subscription will be able to enjoy the benefits of Skype's personal communications service when they are on the move in Germany", said Niklas Zennstrom, Skype CEO and Co-founder. "We look forward to working with other innovative mobile operators around the world to bring the value and convenience of the Skype global Internet communications experience to their millions of mobile phone subscribers."

The flat-rate data subscription is available throughout Germany for EUR 39.95 per month. Skype will be the only company offering calls over the Internet on the E-Plus mobile network.

Mobile users of the Skype/E-Plus bundle will benefit from a fixed-rate mobile Internet access and free Skype calling, the ability to control call costs using the E-Plus flat-rate data subscription and the freedom to call from home, office or on the road using their Skype account.

Skype has more than 2.8 million Skype users throughout Germany, and worldwide the company has more than 52 million registered users.

Skype is also working with a number of leading mobile handset and headset manufacturers, including Motorola, to offer Skype callers an extensive range of Skype-ready devices.
