The development of mobile networks together with the growing popularity of Internet services is currently leading the mobile industry to converge with the Internet world. One of the most widely discussed Internet services is VoIP that has already become an important means of communication in the Internet. However, also the mobile industry has experienced some tentative launches of VoIP services (Nokia phones with SIP application, Fring, Three and Skype collaboration). In addition, the development of other
mobile Internet services will only speed up the emergence of mobile VoIP. Mobile
operators have recognized the threat of mobile VoIP and the consequences it may have
on their voice revenue. On the other hand, some of the mobile operators may see the
development as an opportunity to converge with the services industry.
