Abstract

VoIP is a technology that has received much attention over the past few years. Speculations are rampant that it will be “the technology” for telecommunications of the future, as broadband gains mass market penetration in every nation. It holds the promise of ubiquity and eliminates the need for a separate infrastructure for telecommunications. In this chapter, we have undertaken a cross country analysis of two economies, Germany and India, at varied levels of broadband voice over internet protocol (VoIP) diffusion, to examine the future potential of this technology in the respective nations and their telecommunications industries. Our brief analysis revealed some valuable insights regarding the impact of VoIP in both economies which may prove to be useful for other economies and telecommunication industries.
