Skype popularity 'grows as crunch bites'
6 July 2009 — 5:00 PM
The number of people turning to cheaper internet calling services like Skype could continue to be good news for the provider, it has been suggested.
According to a spokesman for TeleGeography, an organisation which monitors and researches the sector, as people look to save money on communications, such applications have been able to thrive.
Consumers looking into mobile recycling as a means to fund Skype-enabled handsets like 3 Mobile's INQ1 may be interested to hear the comments of Stephan Beckert, director of research at the firm.
He explained, although it could not be fully substantiated, all the signs seem to suggest the web-based phone software was enjoying high traffic - and provided a solution for cheap business and personal calling.
"The volumes are obviously huge, and growing at about 50 per cent annually. It remains to be seen what impact the recession or the release of clients for mobile devices will have on Skype's traffic," he said.
