How much does it cost to use Skype on Telus and how much data will it use?

Just like with Skype on your computer, Skype-to-Skype calling and instant messaging is free. You will require a little Skype Credit or a subscription to call mobile and landline numbers abroad, which are charged at regular Skype rates.

Telus data charges will also apply. As long as you have an unlimited data plan, you shouldn’t incur any extra data charges for using Skype on Telus phone. However, here is an example to break down some typical data usage for you:

Say you have 25 Skype contacts and you sign in twice a day for a total of one hour. If you were to send about 15 instant messages and make two calls, either Skype-to-Skype or to a mobile or landline at around two minutes each, you would only use roughly 1 MB of data per month.

To learn more about data usage for Skype over the Telus 4G network, visit the Telus website.
