re: Skype Rings on Hong Kong Market
So what are the benefits of this to Skype and HGC? LR: Where is the "analysis" part?

re: Skype Rings on Hong Kong Market
I'd have thought it was fairly straightforward.

Skype gets more users to sell SkypeIn and SkypeOut minutes to.

HGC provides a reason for their customers to visit their portal, then to use Skype over the HGC broadband network. They also get 'positive karma' with their customers... in that they are seen as supporting a free service.

Given that users could download Skype anyway, I can't see any extra decrease in voice revenues...

If HGC are clever, they'll find some way to link Skype to their existing services, or to provide some sort of sticky value add service. (Common PSTN number on SkypeIn, common network provided voicemail account etc...)

All positive.

(Disclamer - Skype - I am looking for a job ;-)
