VoIP is capturing the market away from traditional phone lines.

People are often asking me about the rates of adoption of VoIP technology in the market. Finally, I've got some real figures to report.

According to FierceVoIP analysis of the Point Topic report, Broadband and VoIP bundles could push market to saturation.

More than one in five consumer broadband lines already come with VoIP and it has reached 100 million subscribers worldwide by the end of 2009.

So, here is the summary of the adoption figures:

22% of worldwide market has access to VoIP
Over 100,000,000 have subscribed to it and are using VoIP instead of PSTN (that obviously doesn't include services like Skype that have over 400 mil. subscribers)
Over 70% of French households now have a VoIP service available

Open source PBX systems also help business adoption, leading all other PBX vendors in the markets share for phone systems:

Open Source PBX is 18% of North America Market!

Not all open source PBX systems are deployed in conjunction with VoIP phone lines, but all are capable of connecting to VoIP, future-proofing your investment.
