Skype has passed a pretty significant milestone, serving over 100 billion (US billion) minutes of Skype-to-Skype calls, be that voice and video calls. Yes, that’s 100,000,000,000 free discussion minutes since Skype’s launch in 2003.
To put that in context, that’s one minute of free talk for every man, woman and child that has ever walked the Earth!
Skype got another comparisons too – people have used Skype to talk for more than 69,444,444 days – that’s more than 190,258 years.
Skype’s had a pretty rough time recently, what with Internal routing problems and the disaster of dropping their 0207 London SkypeIn customers with very little notice, so it’s good to hear something positive from them again.
