Yes, both have zero grams of fat per serving.

It depends on where you live. In California skim milk is the same as fat free, and this milk can contain up to 0.5 grams of fat per a serving and still be labeled as "Fat Free". We also have 1% fat milk, which is labeled as "low fat milk" and 2% fat milk which is labeled as "reduced fat milk". I would imagine that this information is the same for rest of the U.S. too, but I'm not sure.
