France Telecom notches up 1m VoIP users

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

France Telecom (FT) has chalked up more than a million residential internet telephony lines across Europe, according to VoIP partner Netcentrex.

FT's VoIP service has been up and running for 18 months. The latest stats show that at the end of 2005 it had a million VoIP lines with some 150,000 new subscribers being added each month across France, UK, The Netherlands, Italy and Spain.

However, exactly how those numbers are split between each country remains unclear.

In November, France Telecom-owned Wanadoo reported that it had some 80,000 VoIP lines in the UK, making it the UK's leading VoIP outfit - their claim, not ours.

The ISP has yet to update these figures, but it seems likely that it now has well over 100,000 VoIP users in the UK.

Last month BT bragged that it had some 300,000 VoIP UK punters. ®
