In response to a new survey and report from AT&T and the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Aswath gives another interpretation (just for fun) of the same data used by AT&T and EIU.
- 254 senior executives worldwide are evenly divided on the use of VoIP, with majority (57%) not seeing the benefit.
- Even in 2008, VoIP will garner less than 6% of worldwide fixed telecom retail services revenue.
- 87% of the respondents think cost reduction is the primary motive. So incumbents can reduce the price and undercut the movement towards VoIP.
