The latest tariff from 3 Mobile is claimed to be something of a UK first in terms of providing users with "something for nothing".
For a monthly fee of £0, 3 Mobile customers will be able to make free Skype-to-Skype calls as well as access a range of instant messaging services at no extra cost.
The Sim Zero package, as it is known, will be available from June 17th and is designed to help out consumers looking to save cash – something that recycling mobile phones can also help with.
Andy Nuttall, 3 Mobile’s head of Pay Monthly services, states: "Customers can come to us and when they’re at home in the UK they’ll never have to pay for a call or instant message to anyone else on Skype anywhere in the world."
However, a compatible handset will be required for Skype access – such as the INQ1 and Skypephone S2.
Those looking to take advantage of the voice over internet service may also be able to do so via their home PC or laptop.
