Comcast reportedly axing Skype on Xfinity from June 1st

Well, Comcast’s idea to charge users $10 a month for set-top Skype hardware went as well as you could have expected. If DSLReports sources are correct, the offering will be quietly retired on June 1st due to, surprise surprise, “low adoption.” If you were one of the few triple-play customers who ponied up for the gear, fear not, as the leaked internal e-mail says that existing users will continue to be supported. Given that you can snag subscription-free gear from Logitech, Biscotti and others, it’s no surprise to see Skype on Xfinity joining Cisco’s Umi on the island of misfit telepresence devices.
