Scott Durchslag, chief operating officer of Skype, a wholly-owned subsidiary of eBay and a leading provider of voice-over-Internet protocol (VoIP) services, said in an interview that WiMAX wireless broadband popularization is very important for the company.

Mr. Durchslag said in an interview with DigiTimes web-site that further development of Skype services at the traditional mobile telecommunications market is limited since VoIP providers will inevitably conflict with existing mobile telecom service carriers who earn the vast majority of money on voice communications. However, WiMAX is a different case and there would be new applications for potential cooperation.

Even though there are Skype clients for some mobile phones, the company is not working hard on promoting its services in order to avoid potential conflicts between carriers, phone makers and itself. Since WiMAX providers capitalize on data transfer, which is why there will be no conflicts between network operators and VoIP service providers.
