About VoIP Monitor .net
VoIPMonitor.net is an online weblog covering news, analysis, information and opinions relating to Voice over IP (VoIP) and Internet telephony. Since 2005, VoIP Monitor has been filtering through the latest headlines and company news to provide the top stories in a high-impact online format.
How big is VoIP? Just about anyone today can pick up a paper or see a commercial that somehow relates to VoIP. Some companies call it digital phone service, broadband phone service, or any number of other names, but in all reality, it is really VoIP.
According to the IDC, a research and market intelligence company, voice over IP (VoIP) is the next generation of technology to change the telecommunications landscape. "The market for consumer VoIP services is still in its infancy, but IDC's future outlook points to exponential growth within the next four years. IDC predicts that residential U.S. VoIP subscribers will grow from 10.3 million in 2006 to 44 million in 2010."
The global market for consumer VoIP services has arrived, with total VoIP subscribers worldwide at 16 million in 2005 and projected to grow to over 55 million in 2009, reports research firm In-Stat. In-Stat also reports about 10 million IP phones will be in use by the end of 2006 and is estimated at about 164 million by 2010.
It's our goal at VoIPMonitor.net to help increase awareness and understanding of this new technology and help empower consumers to make the switch from traditional plain old telephone service to the new age of Voice over IP.
Thanks you to our readers, users, and those who help contribute to VoIP's evolving technologies.
