Another Sign

Found an interesting article tonight regarding carriers of international phone calls. An internet VOIP company, Skype, is now the largest provider of international voice calls.

TeleGeography estimates that Skype international calls topped 33 billion minutes of use in 2008.

This news shouldn't be surprising to "techies" and even the general public is starting to take notice.

The telecommunications industry is in the middle of a huge paradigm shift. Telecommunications businesses (telephone, television stations, radio stations, satellite tv, cable tv, etc) that haven't taken notice will be seeing a decline in their business over the next 5-15 years.
