Currently 269 VoIP providers in the Australian market
While there is a high level of awareness and
interest in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) services in Australia,
take-up is still comparatively low, according to research released by
the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) yesterday.
The research found that 81 per cent of
Internet households were aware of VoIP but only 15 per cent of
respondents (being persons 18 years and over) and 13 per cent of small
and medium enterprises (SMEs) had used a VoIP service.
The findings are included in the research
report, The Australian VoIP Market, which presents the findings of
research into the supply and demand of VoIP services in Australia.
