Skype and HGC

What does it mean when service providers start to strike deals with Skype instead of dismissing them as  a company filling a niche? Hong Kong based Hutchinson Global Communications LTD, the operator of the largest fibre-to-the-building network in Hong Kong, today announce a partnership to promote and deliver Skype software to the Hong Kong market.

Leveraging the strength of P2P technology, the "HGC-Skype" portal will deliver superior quality voice communications to its users. The "HGC-Skype" portal will offer Hong Kong users free and unlimited Skype-to-Skype voice calls worldwide and the pre-paid SkypeOut service, which enables users to call any fixed or mobile phone in the world at special rates. Skype calls are end-to-end encrypted for superior privacy. Article.
