Mobile VoIP set to hit half a trillion minutes
Within five years, mobile users will make a staggering 470 billion minutes of VoIP calls from mobile devices.
The number of voice over IP (VoIP) calls carried over mobile networks is set to grow a massive 30 times over in the next five years.
Analysts Juniper Research calculate that users of mobile 3G and 4G networks currently make 15 billion minutes of calls using VoIP. But as faster networks become more common, Juniper believes this total will rise, to 470.6 billion minutes.

The trend growth in mobile VoIP calls is expected to grow quickly among business users, who are more likely to use unlocked handsets with VoIP support, such as the Nokia E Series, or devices such as Cisco's upcoming Cius tablet device.
