Skype Celebrates Record VoIP Users

Skype may have suffered from the recent service outage which left millions of users disappointed, but the VoIP company also has something to celebrate.

The launch of the Skype video-calling service for the Apple iPhone has been a huge success.

Record numbers of users downloaded the app this month. Normally Skype sees around 25 million users sign on at peak times, but this week that figure was boosted to 27 million users.

Another filip for Skype has been the announcement of a deal with video streaming company Qik. That will help to provide excellent quality video calls.

These developments will be good news for the company which is seeking an Initial Public Offering and it also hopes to a corporate service to users.

The Research firm Telegeography reported that one in five international calls were made using Skype last year.
