  1. This is right in line with my expectations. Now the big question is “What is their Gross Margin.” Of the 2 cents (recently reduced to 1.5) per minute of SkypeOut, how much of that is Skype’s?

    Overall, they must doing well to have hired so many people in the past year. So, I’m guessing they get 50% of gross revenues.

  2. SkypeIn customers contribute $3/month (say 30 Euros for the annual less payment service fees yields USD$36). Not sure how many SkypeIn customers there are.

    For SkypeOut, USD$.02 per minute would mean 150 minutes per month to generate USD$3. Not an insignificant number of minutes of use.

    Facts and transparency would clear all of this up.

  3. jake, as i have been saying all along / skype needs to make it all clear (if not in revenues) then in terms of minutes used for skypein/skype out. anyway i can go on ranting about this all day long…. 🙂

  4. think of the 12 Billion minutes of SKYPE despite the ”how much REVENUES do they make”’———-their EXIT strategy is obviously to sell out to Google or somebody BIG!

  5. john, i guess we are having a little “lost in translation” issue here. cannot tell if it is couple of dollars or $3 dollars. i wish someone would read the original article in swedish and translate accurately for all of us

  6. Don’t forget in most European markets Skype will also receive a share of temination fees for their SkypeIn service.

    How much will depend on the market and their agreements with the PSTN Wholesaler.

    I would not be at all surprised if this could add on average another 30% to the ARPU. So instead of just getting €30 pa. They are getting more like €40 pa.
