The global phone market has been set on its ear. There are enough people around the world using Skype and their connections from ISPs to account for over one-third of all international phone traffic. It was observed by a telecom market analysis firm that the amount of cross-border video and voice traffic from Skype user to Skype user increased by 44% in 2012.
This may prove to be a future worry for international internet providers, who cannot maintain revenues without steady growth. Unfortunately, the rate of growth may be slowing right now. Internet Service Providers in Minneapolis Minnesota, however, continue their upward trends. It’s important to note that Skype is not the only culprit in countries where slow growth is occurring. Apps are also being used to make phone calls, and they include Google Voice, among others.
