The fixed VoIP service market in the U.S is set to take off thanks to the growing demand for residential and business VoIP services alike.
Businesses are increasingly turning to VoIP in order to reduce communications costs. In addition to the cost advantages, business VoIP services deliver other benefits including the facility to deliver emergency communications and advanced communications services including multiple extensions, virtual PBX (News - Alert) and more.
According to a recent report from TechNavio, the fixed VoIP services market in the U.S. will ramp up at a CAGR of 10.15 percent over the period 2012-2016.
