Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) outfit Skype has announced a mobile partner programme to boost dodgy 3G connections.
The partnership initiative launched by Skype is a deal with mobile operators in areas with low 3G broadband penetration. The VoIP company wants to use its mobile partner programme to get operators to optimise their 3G coverage.
Skype reckons it can do this by using a client/server model. The client/server model was built for operators and it means that any operator who signs up for the partnership can use Skype on most of its smartphones.
