Dutch market research group Telecompaper has revealed that the number of VoIP subscribers in the country reached nearly 1.8 million at the end of 2006, up from 655,000 twelve months previously. KPN added more than half a million users while cable companies added more than 400,000. ‘The market share of digital telephony services on the Dutch consumer market approached 30%, leaving still 70% for the traditional PSTN and ISDN services,’ the research firm said in a statement.
