Note: After some TalkBacks from French speakers, I have taken out the Babelfish-spawned French recommended translation for "so what" from the post title and body. This experience tells me that if you want something translated accurately, hire an interpreter, or at least a speaker of the language. Web-based translation is too hit or miss.On the U.K.-based VoIP User Forum, site administrator dean has been compiling some interesting stats about the frequency of VoIP-to-European -numberPSTN phone calls placed from various European countries.
These numbers do not count VoIP to VoIP calls, Vonage calls, or Skype calls. But they do encompass almost every other major provider.
Dean's taken these numbers, overlayed them with the population for each call-originating nation, and then computed each nation's percentage of all the world's VoIP related traffic. To add perspective, he's indicated this percentage in a chart along with the population of each nation listed.
From the numbers below, it looks like the UK, Poland, Austria and Switzerland are doing very well relative to their population, but that VoIP has a way to go to catch on in France, Italy, Spain, Germany and Russia.
