The Death of Voice Has Been Greatly Exaggerated


By Greg BryanFeb 7, 2023


Why has it taken us this long to welcome Senior Research Manager Paul Brodsky—an A+ podcast guest—to TeleGeography Explains the Internet?

I brought Paul on to discuss our most recent voice report, but we couldn’t help getting into a whole lot more. 

We talked about the history of telecom and how voice and internet networks compare—and how that is impacting voice traffic and revenue. 

It’s not often on the show that we get into histories reaching back to a century or more ago, but this context is useful for understanding changes in how humans communicate in 2023. 

Paul and I also talk about the cash cow that voice once was and what's happening now. Voice enthusiasts will appreciate that we get into the history of OTT and VoIP technologies and how they've disrupted the market. And we couldn't leave out mobile, especially as Paul came to TeleGeography from a mobile provider. You can listen to the whole conversation below.
