I strongly commend Skype for making such strategic move. They have finally paid details to mostly ignored priority such as areas with low bandwidth or connectivity. I'm so much glad about the news that the global giant has finally partnered with the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). This only means, consumers can highly benefit with this healthy competition.
