Research company Juniper has charted the demand for Mobile VoIP in Europe and the US, with more users appearing in emerging markets.
Juniper found that a VoIP technology boom is taking place which will create 100 million users over the next two years.
Senior analyst at Juniper, Anthony Cox, said: “We expect a significant increase in whatever form mobile VoIP takes by the year 2012.
"By then mobile VoIP will have evolved over both Wi-Fi and 3G networks, while more traditional operators will have developed relationships with Verizon in the United States, 3UK and Skype.
He added: “But VoIP will be mainly used in the future over Wi-Fi networks, which will bypass operators altogether".
According to the Juniper Opportunities and Business Models report for 2010 - 2015, an increase in the number of providers will lead to increased operators.
But as Wi-Fi takes over, the fall in mobile VoIP operator revenues could be as much as $5bn by 2015.
The Juniper Research subsequently predicted that circuit based voice markets will decline, leading to a fall in revenue.
