Selling an old mobile could allow for Mobile VoIP use

Mobile VoIP will be increasingly established as internet-enabled mobile phones become more widespread, it has been suggested.

The claim comes following a report from market research firm In-Stat, proposing that the total number of mobile VoIP users will reach 288 million by the end of 2013.

It anticipates that well over half of these will be associated with online mobile VoIP providers.

George Van Horn, senior analyst at IBISWorld, suggested that in the next decade the vast majority of connections to broadband will be done through handsets, which means there is massive potential for a widespread introduction of mobile VoIP in the future.

He added: "High-definition VoIP will play a role in improving phone call quality and service options, which will contribute to the growing user base."

Figures from IBISWorld recently revealed that despite VoIP being a new industry, between 2002 and 2009 revenue growth accumulated to 179,036 per cent.
