I noticed that my Skype credit was going down much more quickly than I'd recalled in the past. I don't make many calls, so it didn't surprise me too much that a connection fee had been added (apparently about 3.9 cents a call for US to US) in Jan of this year.

That said, part of the explanation in the FAQ ostensibly justifying the connection left me wondering, "FTW?"

Skype has been offering paid-for products since 2004 and the introduction of this connection fee is part of a new disruptive pricing strategy.

Eh? That makes consumers feel better how again?
