TeliaSonera launches new wholesale VoIP service

30 Jun 2006

TeliaSonera’s International Carrier division has launched a new wholesale service, VoIP Connect, which allows other carriers to offer international VoIP telephony to their customers via TeliaSonera’s gateway without making additional investments in new telephony servers. Prior to the launch of the new platform, tests were carried out with a selected group of clients and TeliaSonera estimates that approximately 30 to 40 new customers will be using this service in the Nordic region, the rest of Europe and the US before the end of 2006. The company predicts that VoIP usage will grow by 10% per quarter in western Europe and that 30% of all broadband users will use IP telephony by the end of 2007.
