    Interesting numbers but how is a subscriber defined? Does it include individuals with free Skype … accounts. If it does, they’re not impressive. The turning point for VoIP will be when SMB’s cancel their accounts with PSTN carriers and rely exclusively on VoIP phone systems. Sadly I think that could take a decade or more.

    No, Free phone services, like Skype, not included.

    Even more. IP trunking era, is far away!

    The voip platforms are more flexible you can assighn a range of of DID’s and make autmatic CIC’s and this can be condidered as trucnking and you can get better results other than the TDM .
