04/02/2010 - Report: VoIP to see 79% penetration in 3 years
According a new In-Stat report, VoIP penetration will double 2009 numbers in just three years. By 2013, we will see 79 percent penetration. Today about 33 percent of companies use VoIP, but according to the research firm that number is only set to grow.
It will come as no surprise what In-Stat deduced to be the main driver of the VoIP change-over. Cost savings! "VoIP adopters have a good understanding of the cost savings associated with VoIP, and have oriented their limited budgets to optimizing efficiency and savings by replacing legacy TDM voice solutions,” said David Lemelin, In-Stat analyst, in the release.
Broadband IP Telephony revenue will also double by 2013, In-Stat said, fueled by single user applications as well as the mobile workforce.
