The rise and decline of VOIP

Personally, I think that services like Vonage will see a major fallout as Cable companies continue to throttle bandwidth and block needed ports. Just my thinking…

A new report from Jupiter Research says that the market for VoIP hardware and software will touch US$5.5 billion by 2007, but will then decline to US$ 3 billion because of a mature market and falling prices.

How quickly things change. Just the other day everyone was talking about a great promise called VoIP and next you find people calling VoIP a commodity and a tough market to make any money.

Jupiter Research explains the probable decline in sales by linking it to the inevitable maturing of the all-important Chinese Market and by the entrance of low-price suppliers into the market. Source: VoIP Now
