China Passes U.S. As Skype’s Top Market

China has replaced the U.S. as the top market for Skype. The VoIP provider ascribed the current expansion of its market in Asia — home to 30 percent of its 171 million global subscribers — to the growing popularity of the service in China. For its China operations, Skype partnered with Tom Online Inc., which earlier disclosed its intention to privatize its business. Scott Bagby, the new market development director at the eBay-acquired company, said the announcement has no effect on the partnership as well as Skype’s operations in the Asian nation, stressing that “Skype out” call service remains the firm’s main source of revenue there.
