Many more Dutch use VoIP on mobile since release WhatsApp calling




The use of VoIP on phones has risen sharply, as Deloitte reports based on its own research. Where in 2014 five percent of Dutch respondents said VoIP use, which rose in 2015 to 23 percent. Chime in WhatsApp came out last spring.

In which 23 per cent are people at the Global Mobile Survey by Deloitte said they had used in the past seven days, made of VoIP applications on their smartphone. Deloitte did not examine whether there is a connection with the release of the call feature of WhatsApp, but that is obvious, because in 2014, before the release of that function, approximately five percent of the respondents said they have a VoIP application used.

Most people still call through the provider and the number of respondents who used regular call is still rising. It is slightly above 80 percent. The use of chat applications has risen to more than 70 percent. Chat Apps have overtaken in the survey for the first SMS, which is used by approximately 60 per cent of respondents.

The study also shows that 4G users connect their smartphone less with wifi. Of the people who were among the first to 4g names, uses 52 percent wifi and uses 48 percent mainly 4g. When respondents who took 4g later, 31 percent used mainly 4g and 3g users is 14 percent. Meanwhile, 35 percent of respondents 4g.

Deloitte also provides an overview of the market shares by carrier. KPN, Vodafone and T-Mobile all three lose market share, mainly to their own sub-brands as Simyo, KPN and Vodafone New Holland.
