Japan leads for mobile VoIP use among seven Arbitron smartphone panels in North America, Europe and Asia
Heaviest use of mobile VoIP among Japanese and Indonesian panelists contrasts with their lighter use of cellular network voice calling

COLUMBIA, Md., Feb. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Japanese smartphone panelists are the predominant users of Voice over IP (VoIP) applications on mobile devices, according to the latest updates by Arbitron Mobile for its smartphone measurement services in seven countries around the world.

Almost 70 percent of the smartphone panelists in Japan accessed VoIP apps during the month of January, spending six hours and 25 minutes with these multi-faceted voice and messaging apps. The Arbitron Mobile on-device software meter reported that VoIP users in the Japan smartphone panel accessed their VoIP apps an average of 222 times in the month, three times more than panelists in Indonesia, who at 65.9 sessions per month are the second most active users of VoIP apps across the seven Arbitron Mobile-based smartphone panels.

41 percent of Indonesia panelists use VoIP apps on their mobile devices, spending an average of 2 hours and 15 minutes a month.

China panelists are the least active users of VoIP apps. Only 16.4 percent of the China smartphone panel (operated by iResearch) accessed any VoIP apps in the month of January.
