Residential VoIP

Residential VoIP is coming on strong as milions are staying home and saving big. Residential VoIP subscribers are expected to jump from 3 million today to 27 million by 2009. Residential VoIP spending is forecast to increase 64-percent per year over the next 5 years. Telecom consultancy Atlantic-ACM estimates that home VoIP use will reach $20.4 billion in revenue within the next 5 years.

Until this year, residential VoIP has been in the early adopter stage of development. That is expected to change by the end of 2007. At this point, residential VoIP will be moving fully into the mainstream and will not be looking back. With companies like Vonage, Cablevision and Time Warner leading the way (in 1st place, 2nd place and 3rd place order), the residential VoIP market is on the verge of becoming a buzzword in the home as well as the workplace.


One of the biggest reasons that residential VoIP will be taking off in 2007 is that explosion of broadband use into the households. Approximately 42.3 million homes are expected to have broadband connections by the end of the year, accounting for 36.2-percent of the households, according to marketing expert Steve Butler. This broadband explosion means that Internet DSL, cable and satellite providers will be able to bundle residential VoIP packages into their current offerings.

 

Residential VoIP is not a U. S. phenomenon, but rather a global one with Europe and Asia leading the way in current subscribers. Japan leads the way in Asia with over 4 million residential VoIP subscribers. France and Italy lead the European nations in residential VoIP, each outnumbering the top provider in the U. S.

Some of the most popular residential VoIP service providers include Vonage, CableVision, Time Warner, VoicePulse, SunRocket, Packet8, Lingo, Dialpad, Skype, AT&T and Verizon. Two of the top three residential VoIP service providers are cable companies with many more cable operations like Cox Communications expected to compete heavily in the near future in this market.Even satellite companies like Hughes Electronics and SkyFrames are forming strategic alliances with Vonage and Net2Phone for the purposes of adding residential VoIP to their bundled packages. Of course there are also smaller players such as Axvoice VoIP Provider getting in on the action, undercutting the larger players on price.



Residential VoIP has recently received a boost by the FCC who has required all residential VoIP service providers to offer full emergency 911 services by September 2005. The e911 residential VoIP service has been mandated as mandatory by the FCC (unlike currently where many providers offer it as an optional service). The mandate will provide subscribers with the same security they have known using their landlines and will be the last major obstacle for many in deciding to remove their landline service and opt-in to residential VoIP service.
