[Juniper Research]: mVoIP OTT Is Still Ahead - 1B Users by 2017

A new report by Anthony CoxJuniper Research forecasts that there will be "..over 1 billion users of over the top (OTT) mobile VoIP services by 2017, reflecting a dramatic shift in how voice traffic is carried over the next five years ..  improvements in network technology, increased competition and the move by telcos to join the OTT space will all come together to give the mobile “internet-voice” market a ‘second wind’. However, as with Skype on the desktop, only a very small proportion will pay for the service"

“.. The arrival of 4G will give further impetus to mobile VoIP take-up but potentially accelerate the decline in overall voice revenues.

  1. I think that's amazing that they will have over one million users! That's a lot more than I would have ever predicted! I'm very interested to see where this whole thing will go in the next five years. I anticipate that it will get even bigger and better!
