Skype Accounts for 33% of all Cross-Border Calling Minutes

Microsoft-owned Skype  accounts for about 33 percent of all international long distance voice minutes of use, about 145 billion of the total 438 billion minutes used in 2011. Skype's share of cross-border calling will grow in 2012, in part because the base of potential users is going to grow significantly.  According to Skype CEO Tony Bates, Skype has 254 million monthly active users and is “growing somewhere around 40 percent year on year.”
