There’s an obvious reason why the domestic land-lines phones are not and will not be upgraded into an IP-phone in the near future. It could potentially send the monopoly players such as Telekom Malaysia Berhad (KLSE: TM, stock-code 4863) packing simply because people will be busy making free calls from anywhere, provided you can load a small piece of software into the IP-phone. One of the softwares is Skype.

However, Skype which was acquired by eBay Inc. (Nasdaq: EBAY, stock) in 2002 is introducing its first plan for unlimited calls to overseas phones on Monday. The plan will allow unlimited calls to land-line phones in 34 countries for $9.95 per month which includes most of Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, China, Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Korea and Malaysia. Skype has already been selling unlimited calls to the U.S. and Canada for $3 a month and to Mexico City for $5.95 per month.

Basically you can use Skype to call anyone in the world as long as both of you have software application (Skype) running on a computer equipped with a microphone and speakers or a headset. With most of you have smart phone which could load the Skype software nowadays, you can virtually call anyone as long as you’re connected to the internet.
