Voice over internet protocol (VoIP) is set to become a everlasting threat to traditional landline communications, is has been suggested.
Patrick Christian, senior analyst at telecommunications research company TeleGeography, says that at present VoIP is providing a very real threat to the continuation of international landline telephone carriers, in terms of siphoning away customers from this form of communication.
Actually, he anticipates that VoIP uptake will increase on such a grand scale that the medium will cease a total of 30 billion minutes worth of calls that would usually be spent on traditional fixed-line networks in the coming years.
He adds that the popularity of VoIP and the "immense traffic volumes"; that are being drawn away from telephone companies show that the development of the technology is set to be at the expense of traditional carriers.
Mr Christian's comments come in response to latest findings from TeleGeography, which revealed that over the past 25 years, international call volume from telephones has developed at an annual rate of 15 per cent.
However, since the introduction of the rising popular VoIP, this development has been seen to slow to just eight per cent annually.
