    Skype will block local calls in India starting November 10

    Skype is either changing, or being forced to change, its strategy in India. The Microsoft service will no longer offer landline and mobile calls for Indian residents starting November 10th.

    This change came pretty much out of the blue and was announced by Skype on one of their support channels. According to their announcement, starting November 10th the local Indian subscriptions will no longer be valid. As such they recommend users either cancel or use up their credit by that date to avoid losing money.

    If you've bought a subscription to India specifically to call within the country, you can cancel your subscription to avoid being billed in the future.

    Maybe the phone companies are behind it to protect their revenue. A power company in a nearby state is proposing charging those using solar energy solely to maintain their customer base [income].
