Skype dominates VoIP (at least outside US)

Tuesday, December 11, 2007

According to IT Wire, Skype accounts for 95% of all VOIP on the net, but only 1% of the bandwidth. The study claims to have looked at three petabytes of anonymous data representing over one million users in Australia, Eastern Europe, Germany, the Middle East and Southern Europe during August and September 2007

P2P (file sharing) is the dominant consumer of bandwidth, accounting for over 90% of Internet bandwidth during the night, according to the research.

The Ipoque site also mentions that "The complete protocol distribution is only available for Germany and Middle East."

I'm sorry, but the statistician in me thinks that the objective of the study has more to do with selling Ipoque gear than understanding P2P demographics or SIP vs. Skype battle outcome.
