The planet is shaking in several countries, and many people are affected by these natural disasters. Japan and Ecuador resonate in every corner of the planet after suffering earthquakes 7.4 and 7.8 on the Richter scale, respectively, accompanied by strong aftershocks.

In many places, telephone networks have collapsed, or failures caused the earthquake, making the Internet more stable for communicating with these countries.

Skype Offers Free Calls In Japan And Ecuador

On Friday, April 15, an earthquake struck the Japanese island Kyushu leaving only a dozen dead. Two days later, on Sunday, 17 April, an earthquake hit Ecuador’s coast, leaving a balance of more than 300 people dead and over 2,000 injured.

Unfortunately, both natural disasters left fatalities plus damage to telecommunications infrastructures. Microsoft is aware of this, and therefore, Microsoft wants to support thanks to its platform Skype offers free calls for users on the earthquake site, so people living in Ecuador and Japan can call free of charge. Also, if you have relatives in the affected areas, you can make calls free of charge.

Over the next few days, the people of the affected countries and the world can communicate with their loved ones through Skype, solving a major problem. For that reason, Microsoft wants to avoid abuse and, if necessary, will be forced to close accounts service.

This is not the first time that the guys from Redmond’s heart softened to offer free calls in countries where they need it, regardless of the source of the damage, because the most important thing is to keep connecting victims with their friends and families in times of pain and enough is appreciated this initiative because many people want to know the status of their loved ones.
