Paid VoIP Users in China to Exceed 70 Million by 2011

By Anuradha Shukla, TMCnet Contributing Editor

Fueled by GDP growth of 8 to 10 percent over the next five years, China’s telecom industry will continue to grow on all fronts. By 2011, the total number of Chinese broadband subscribers will be 144 million, and paid VoIP services adoption will dovetail with broadband growth. These statistics are from The Dragon Market: VoIP in China 2007 - 2011.

VoIP in China is currently defined as any call transformed or converted to IP at any point during its transmission (“IP Inside”). These include calls made with special IP calling cards. VoIP calls in the U.S. are commonly defined as either initiating or terminating via VoIP endpoints.

Charlie Reed, ATLANTIC-ACM analyst covering the VoIP sector, explained in a press release that ATLANTIC-ACM’s new forecast for China reveals that for the latter type, the total number of subscribers will rapidly grow to 70 million, provided that China, as is expected this year, eases its restrictions on VoIP termination to the public switched telephone network (PSTN).

The Dragon Market: VoIP in China 2007-2011 is available immediately. The comprehensive, 88-page study is affordably priced at $1,495 and includes market sizing and forecasts for wireline, mobile and several different types of VoIP, backgrounders and key statistics about the telecom market in China, drivers of VoIP adoption, case studies with financial, traffic, subscriber data for the major Chinese telecom companies and important conclusions.
