A mere four per cent of UK consumers regularly useSkype to make phone calls, new research has found.
Figures released by JupiterResearch in its report Skype and VoIP – Quantifying the Hype in the UK reveal that VoIP services are only used by 12 per cent of online consumers in the UK.
"While Skype usage is low today across the whole population, in specific groups such as youthful consumers, there is tremendous acceptance of Skype’s VoIP service," said Ian Fogg, lead author of the report and senior analyst at JupiterResearch.
