Houston, we have a problem...

If there's a Mission Control for the telcos, it's time to open up another box of doughnuts and get out the sliderules - it's going to be a long night. Pairing the Skype numbers in the preceding post with the global broadband stats we have to hand, it looks as though Skype penetration of broadband accounts is well over 20% in Benelux, the Nordics, and Switzerland, and in the high teens in France, Germany, and Spain. Still, it could be worse. I come up with a number north of 50% for both Brazil and Israel, and in the 40's for Taiwan.
