The number of people using internet-based telephony almost tripled last year to 1.8 million, according to research by Telecompaper. KPN was market leader with 500,000 people using VOIP telephony by the end of last year – compared with just 15,000 at the end of 2005.

The KPN services have been beset by problems because it expanded too fast.
