Cornwall - Jun. 10, 2011 - TELUS and Skype today announced that they have signed an agreement that will revolutionize how TELUS smartphone customers use Skype, including the ability to purchase Skype Credit through their existing TELUS accounts, making it more secure and convenient for them to stay connected with loved ones both in Canada and abroad while taking advantage of Skype's low-cost calling rates.

"We believe that by developing a deep relationship with leading global communications brands that our customers already know and enjoy, such as Skype, TELUS can provide a superior customer experience that leverages the best of what those brands have to offer and empowers our customers to choose the services they want and need," said David Fuller, chief marketing officer at TELUS.

Through its partnership with Skype, TELUS will continue to increase its participation in the rapidly growing smartphone application ecosystem by pairing its own unique value proposition with Skype's well-known communications solutions. TELUS customers using Skype will more easily and securely be able to take advantage of affordable international calling rates to both landlines and mobile phones through Skype Out calling, using Skype Credit. Only TELUS customers have the ability to have Skype Credit charged directly to their wireless bill.

"People want to take their Skype conversations with them on-the-go, wherever they are, whether it's on a laptop, or increasingly, via their mobile phones," said Russ Shaw, Skype vice-president and general manager of Mobile. "TELUS will enable Canadian consumers to get the best Skype experience on their smartphones and it will truly change the way people communicate with their friends and family either here or abroad."
