Online Phone Calls To Increase Dramatically

from the watch-out dept

A new study is predicting that many more internet users will be using the internet to make phone calls five years from now. That’s a pretty weak prediction that just about anyone could make. As bandwidth increases and users become more comfortable with the internet, of course they’re likely to make more calls. The study also predicts that the increased calls will be driven by free calls that are ad-banner supported. I’m not sure this is true. A lot of PC-phone services are trying to back away from free offerings and fewer and fewer companies feel comfortable relying on ad banners for any sort of revenue.
