Arcep report illustrates VoIP’s growing popularity

1 May 2007

A report published by the French telecoms regulator Arcep says the total number of VoIP-based calls doubled in 2006 and accounted for 25% of total fixed line calls in France over the year. The watchdog added that IP telephony subscriptions have also doubled since the end of 2005 on the back of the increased availability of broadband access alternatives. The number of people signed up to high speed internet packages reached 12.7 million by the start of this year.
