Australia - VoIP - Stats, Overview, Analyses

Synopsis

VoIP, an application running on NGNs, has already started to gain traction in the market, but as a standalone Internet based product it is unlikely to become a replacement for fixed-line telephony. The product certainly will become very popular in broadband-based triple play business models. We estimate that the market over the next 2-3 years will grow to over 1 million paid VoIP subscribers. This report provides statistical overviews and analyses the VoIP industry in Australia. It also highlights the market problems and business opportunities. The VoIP providers are described in separate reports.
