Microsoft ending Skype domestic mobile and landline calls in India November 10

People in India will soon not be able to use Microsoft's Skype service to make calls to local mobile phones and landlines. The company has quietly revealed, via an updated support website page, that all those kinds of calls will end on November 10 in that country.

People in India will still be able to use Skype to make calls to other Skype users and to make international mobile and landline calls. Also, people outside of India will still be able to use their Skype app to call mobile and landline numbers in that country after November 10.

Microsoft has not offered an explanation for this change. However, voice calls on mobile phones in India are incredibly cheap already, with some carriers offering $5 a month or even lower rates for such services.

If you live in India, how do you feel about this upcoming change to Skype services in your country?
