Gartner: 4G to kick off mass migration to mobile VoIP

04 Jun 2009

Gartner predicts that more than half of mobile voice traffic will be carried using end-to-end VoIP by 2019 but the industry won\'t see mass-scale adoption happen until 4G networks are fully implemented in 2017.

In 10 years time we expect that 30% of mobile voice traffic will be carried out through third-party mobile portals such as Google, Facebook, MySpace and Yahoo, which will adopt wireless VoIP service as a voice option to their current communications hub, Gartner said.

Gartner predicts that traditional network-based mobile carriers face over time the real prospect of losing a major slice of their voice traffic and revenue to new non-infrastructure players that use VoIP.
