VoIP Around The World

David Sims is doing a great job keeping us posted on the world events in the communications space while most of us are shopping or just trying to digest our turkey dinners from yesterday. So while you sit down at the lunch table with your turkey sandwich and cranberry sauce be sure to check out his First Coffee column for today where he discusses VoIP around the world.

Sims serves up some Philippine appetizers where by the way, VoIP providers now need to post a performance-guaranteed bond in order to provide service. From there, Sim’s inspired verbal cuisine offers up a selection of main courses from your choice of Germany or the rest of Western Europe.

For Dessert, Sims serves up a healthy serving of Indian growth. Well regurgitated dessert always losing something in translation so here are Dave’s own non-genetically altered words:

According to India Business Insight, research firm Gartner, Inc. has said that India is the fastest-growing information and communication technology industry in the world. Focusing on "the export market instead of capitalizing on the opportunities in the buoyant domestic market," the ICT market in India is likely to grow at a compounded annual growth rate of 19 percent to cross $54.8 billion by 2008, up from $29.5 billion in 2004, Gartner says, adding that ICT exports from India will hit $16.5 billion for 2005.

So it would seem that while the US VoIP market is slowing down to digest its rapid growth this year, the rest of the world is still rapidly devouring voice over IP products and services.
