Skype and E-Plus announce partnership

5 Sep 2005

German mobile operator E-Plus has signed an agreement with Skype to bundle the international VoIP provider’s software with its flat-rate data package, offering users high speed internet services and Skype voice calls over E-Plus’ network. The new package, scheduled to be launched early next month, represents the first partnership that Skype has made with a cellco, and is the first step in its plan to expand its mainly PC-based services to make them available over ‘any network’.
