Skype blew out the floor on international long distance call pricing, but nowadays it's looking like the high-priced service.

"When it comes to inexpensive voice, Skype has some competition in the form of Nymgo," writes analyst Larry Hettick on the Network World blog.

"Founded in 2008 and privately held, Nymgo's VoIP-based calling plans start as low as $0.004 per minute for U.S. calls, $0.013 for calls to India and $0.008 for calls to China. By contrast, Skype charges pay-as-you-go rates of $0.021 for U. S. calls and $0.092 per minute for calls to India. Nymgo rates vary based on the country called and are higher when calling a mobile device in countries with 'calling party pays' mobile plans," Hettick writes.
