According to last week's National Post VoIP story, there are about 15,000 people in Canada who pay for voice over broadband services across multiple providers.

Looking at the Free World Dialup user demographics, there are about 15,000 people in Canada who have a Free World Dialup account.

Jeff Pulver: FWD is amongst the leaders in the Canadian VoIP Marketplace

Sorry, Jeff, but I have to disagree. If we use these sorts of numbers, we can probably just as easily say that iChat users are amongst the leaders in the Canadian VoIP marketplace. I have a FWD account but I've only used it perhaps twice right after I got it -- it's just not easy enough to use.

Of course, I'm still pulling for Jeff when he speaks to the CRTC.
