Google Gmail Phone Challenges Skype
At the moment, Skype is the biggest internet phone provider which claims to have more than 560 million registered users while 8.1 million were paying customers. I believe with Google Voice attractive rates and easiness to use via Gmail page, more internet users will rush to register for cheaper Google phone calls and at the same time attracts more non-Gmail users to open Gmail account in order to enjoy the facility.

It’s still hard to predict the result yet. However, based on the charges of Google Voice and Skype, people within US and Canada who used Skype will be charged for 2.1 cents per minute or $3 per month for making unlimited calls. Skype users who paid for $14 will be able to make unlimited calls to anyone within 40 countries.
