It sounds too good to be true!
eBay CEO Says All Phone Calls Will Be Free
“In the end, the price that anyone can provide for voice transmission on the ‘Net will trend toward zero,” Whitman told analysts during the call..
Ryan said that service providers would make money from the phone calls through advertising or transaction fees.
The eBay CEO was responding to criticism from analysts who questioned whether eBay had overpaid when it bought VoIP provider Skype Technologies for $4 billion.
But- reading between the lines – how is Ebay gonna make money then? Seem to contradict themselves. Free one minute and “transaction fees” the next.
Think I will believe it when I see it.
