Residential Voice over IP Subscribers to Grow 7-Fold to 267 Million by 2012 

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) telephone services will grow to a subscriber base of 267 million by 2012 from less than 38 million subscribers worldwide in 2006, according to a new study released by ABI Research. 

Consumers' decisions to switch to VoIP telephony are at present based largely on its lower cost and the offer of simplified billing. 

By around the end of the decade, ABI believes, the driving motivation will be how VoIP telephony is converged with video, online gaming and other services.

Total subscribers to Voice over-IP services in U.S. grew 18% to 8.2 million in Q3 2006, more than  doubling the figure in a year since 3Q 2005, according to market research firm TeleGeography.

Worldwide VoIP equipment revenue will surge at  CAGR of 24.7% to reach $11.9 billion in 2010, from $3.95 billion in 2005, according to the latest iSuppli report on VoIP.

The new ABI Research study, "Residential IP Telephony" provides an overview of the residential VoIP market as delivered by cable, telecom, satellite, and hosted operators. It also presents an assessment of business drivers for residential VoIP service and vendor relationships for more than 350 VoIP operators around the world.
