On the strength of this alliance, the operator therefore offers its customers benefiting from mobile Internet the possibility of making voice and video calls from Skype without restriction or additional costs.

If Bouygues Telecom mainly mentioned Skype, Clubic editorial staff, specifies that “it is indeed all VoIP services that are concerned, including Viber, Google Talk and eventually Facebook. “

This new option is offered to subscribers as well as to prepaid offers.

The daily Les Echos specifies, for its part, that other national operators are also working on VoIP offers. Orange would concoct an internal service while SFR could form a partnership with the company Tango.

As a reminder, on August 29, Skype celebrated its 9 years of existence. The service claimed a total of 280M unique users last November. 40% of them would connect from a mobile device. Skype would also represent more than a third of international traffic in minutes.
