Because of its bandwidth efficiency and cheaper rates that is provided with VOIP technology it has been becoming more and more popular. More and more VOIP service providers have been emerging in the recent years and clearly it is turning over to move towards mobile VOIP that will allow same features and convenience on the go with its cheap call rates. As per improvement in technology there will be significant change in the quality of data transmission, with improved multimedia and video conferencing provided by many service providers.

The next step most probably would be towards the standard mobile networks particularly emphasizing over the 3G, GPRS standards. The implications of these would be profound enough to shake the future technologies to a huge extent. It has been speculated that like the iPhone and other smartphones have hit the market, so does the use of Voice over IP that would allow users to use applications like Skype and Fring that will allow make free …
