Skype is all about getting users hooked on free part and then charging for additional services like SkypeOut and video conferencing. Also....Skype says it themselves, they are not a replacement for your home telephone -- they are an ancillary communication service.
Skype's master plan is to eventually begin licensing Skype software to handset manufacturers around world. So while Skype may be a threat to VOIP companies and wireline carriers now, it could evolve into a threat for mobile service providers too. Hmmmmm......the future looks to be very interesting.
