Skype revenue and users October 19, 2006

Posted by Jasper in General, VoIP.

Jim Courtney from Skype Journal reports on revenue statistics for Skype in his post Skype Starts to Build US Traction. This is the first time that I have seen official revenue figures for Skype, so I thought I would reproduce his table:

As US-controlled public company the Securities and Exchange Commission requires the breakout of International from domestic sales. So the numbers may be sourced from the 3rd quarter report from eBay. The figures reveal:

  • Skype has grown to around a US$200 million annual business;
  • Skype’s overall revenue growth is slowing;
  • Increase in users is still strong averaging more than 50% per year; and
  • Growth in US users is currently stronger than (other) international users.
