Despite voice over IP’s status as one of the hot information technology topics in the past couple of years, the actual adoption rate seems to be a bit on the careful side.

In-Stat/MDR reports that the percentage of companies using VoIP grew from 3% in 2003 to 12% in 2004, with “substantially higher rates” of growth among large businesses.

Insight Research predicts that installed VoIP private branch exchanges (PBXs) will outnumber installed, conventional PBXs after 2009.

Nemertes Research finds that VoIP costs “vary wildly,” with initial deployment costs ranging from $515 to $1,512 per user.
