Mobile-originated IDD calls to overtake fixed line by 2009

International voice traffic will grow an estimated 12.2% to 385 billion minutes in 2008, driven mainly by mobile, according to TeleGeography. It forecasts that the number of mobile-originated IDD calls will overtake international fixed-line calls by 2009. Nearly one-third of international calls were placed from mobile phones in 2007, while 45% were mobile-terminated.

It used to be only a fraction of that back in 1997. It wont be long where most calls will be made out of mobile only network. It said mobile's growing share of international traffic was a result of subscriber growth in developing countries and the emergence of low-cost IDD calling plans.
