Skype Predictions

in Skype Journal

Some numbers are worth repeating even if they are speculation. These numbers on Skype suggest huge growth for Skype over the next three years. Implies 30-50 million Skypers by year end.

Evalueserve predicts there will be 140 million to 245 million Skype users by 2008, compared to about 15 million total today. Those numbers exclude enterprise users who might switch to future Skype business offerings, which could reduce telcos’ revenues even further.

From a telecom perspective I’d ask whether these numbers remain conservative. Adoption curves have a way of tipping. We’ve not got to that point yet.
