I wanted to share the results of a fun survey that was on TechCrunch today. It is a study published by Harris Interactive and mobile VoIP company Rebtel. It provides some very interesting and surprising facts about U.S. consumers who use VoIP applications. Here is a piece of the article for your enjoyment.
"Of those who make international phone calls, men are more likely than women to do so via their computer through software based services like Skype (31% vs. 19% respectively). The survey also reports that men are more likely than women to say that if they were going to change the way they make international phone calls they would switch to use their mobile phone VoIP service/application. Men are also more likely than women to make video calls (16% vs. 11% respectively).
Of men and women who do make video calls, men are also more likely than women to be willing to pay a monthly fee to be able to do so (42% vs. 24% respectively). From adults surveyed who make international calls, the majority do so using a landline (51%), either a traditional landline service provider (42%) and/or a VoIP service such as Vonage (12%). Another 44% make international phone calls via their mobile phones, through carrier calling rates (25%), special long distance packages (20%), and/or a VoIP service/application (9%). Another 25% of those who make international phone calls do so using their computer through software based services like Skype, while 20% use calling cards and 4% use something else.”
