Cape Verde intends to legalize VoIP.

VoIP is heating up in Africa, both legislatively and in adoption by business users.  Cape Verde intends to legalize VoIP and will license two or three international service providers offering cheap calls; PC-to-PC and PC-to-phone calling will operate without any type of regulation. The country has also licensed Cabo Com, a triple play provider offering voice, Internet and IPTV services. Cabo Com will compete with CV Multimedia, the IPTV subsidiary of Portugal Telecom-owned CV Telecom.

South African businesses are taking up VoIP four years after it became legal to use outside of company networks, according to a study released last week by World Wide Worx. At the end of 2007, half of all corporations were making use of VoIP with levels expected to rise to 64 percent in 2008; most use it for least-cost routing.  SME usage is around 18 percent and expected to reach 25 to 30 percent in 2008.
