U.S. Retail VoIP Grows Quickly


The U.S. market for VoIP advanced dramatically in 2006, adding 3.8 million VoIP households in 2006, reports In-Stat (http://www.in-stat.com). As a result, wholesale VoIP revenues are growing quickly, as MSOs, Skype, and a myriad of new entrants—most lacking network facilities—enter the market and drive demand for telephony features and applications, the high-tech market research firm says.

“As retail VoIP expands, wholesale VoIP will accelerate quickly,” says Bryan Van Dussen, In-Stat analyst. “The largest segment remains international VoIP, but we expect the market for local services to surge from 12% of all revenues to 27% by 2010.”

Recent research by In-Stat found the following:

Consumer VoIP adoption will drive wholesale VoIP revenues to $3.8 billion by 2010 from $1.1 billion in 2006.
International wholesale VoIP termination/origination revenues is experiencing declining growth rates.
Long-haul wholesale VoIP will experience significant migration of TDM services throughout the forecast period, and become a majority of the international market by 2009.
