WhichVoIP released a press release today announcing it’s new Infographic that details the best and worst countries for VoIP in 2014. This infographic provides a global view of VoIP today, showing the countries where VoIP is growing and the countries that have either discussed or actually banned VoIP or OTT (over the top) services such as Skype. There are various reasons why some countries have banned VoIP (curtail free speech, protect native telecommunication industries etc.) and we are seeing news stories in the press from these countries of instances where people have been caught using or trying to supply VoIP services illegally.
The Infographic goes on to summarize the future of VoIP (including items such as the global VoIP sector, the growth of mobile VoIP usage, VoIP demand and expected annual revenue’s), and VoIP growth by country. A map overlay provides a quick and easy visual on which countries are adopting VoIP and its advantages and which countries are resisting it. Some of the countries discussed in this research include USA, France, China, Japan, South Korea, Indonesia, India and Brazil. The top 3 countries who are currently leading the pack for VoIP development and adoption (based on % of broadband users who are actually utilizing VoIP, growth rates and economic factors) are introduced, as well as the best of the rest.
