[In-Stat] Mobile VoIP Revenues to Reach $4B in 2015

If you can't beat them - join them. Last year we saw how KPN tried to impose a surcharge on VoIP OTT and failed (here), a complaint against SK and KT for blocking VoIP (here),a  report showing MNOs concerns of revenues lost (here) and a recommendation from Yankee "MNOs Should Give Customers Choices for VoIP" (here).

It seems that some MNOs were listening.   

A report by Amy Cravens (pictured), Senior Analyst, In-Stat forecasts that "active mobile VoIP subscriber rates will triple in 2012, growing from 9 million in 2011 to 29 million .. As the addressable market increases with smartphone penetration a greater number of providers are introducing services, including a growing handful of mobile operators that are beginning to embrace mobile VoIP

(the original text reads 2011 and 2010, but it seems to be a New-Year hangover effect).

" ..  Revenues associated with mobile VoIP usage will increase to over $4 billion in 2015; LTE operators are not likely to have a significant impact on the mobile VoIP market until 2013"

See "Active Mobile VoIP Subscribers to Triple in 2011" - here.
