  • Profiles of 72 leading European voice, video and broadband providers
  • Overview of dual-play and triple-play prices in 13 European countries
  • Continent-wide and national subscriber and revenue projections through 2012

  • Bi-annual updates, delivered in PDF and Excel spreadsheets, include country subscriber totals, provider rankings, VoIP projections by country and market indicators by country.

A few more key findings:

  • VoIP services will have a dramatic impact on revenues from switched services, both by siphoning subscribers off of the switched network, and by forcing deep reductions in fixed-line voice prices.
  • While Skype has more subscribers in Europe than any individual provider of handset-based VoIP services, the revenues and traffic volumes generated by Skype’s subscribers are lower, and have a much smaller impact on incumbent’s revenues.
  • VoIP adoption in Europe is growing far faster than in the U.S. Prices are a key reason: typical prices for triple play service in the U.S. are approximately 70 percent higher than in Europe.
