Mobile Phone Penetration Across The World [Infographic]

At this point of time I have 4 mobile phones on me, my colleague has two and my boss has about 5 (he changes them regularly). Now that is not an amazing stat in itself, however, as you can see we have a huge mobile penetration amongst ourselves.

Now, that in African regions there is only one phone used by around 2.4 users or 4 phones for every 10 persons. In Europe the penetration is 0.8 people per mobile or 13 phones every 10 people. In Italy almost all users have 2 phones whereas in US there is 1 mobile for every 1.1 person.

These stats come from the latest data made available from the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) which breaks down and tracks the number of people for every SIM card subscription across different continents.

The folks at Nokia Conversations created an infographic that shows mobile phone distributions across several continents from this data. You can see the infographic below.

  1. Mobile phones are now a need for every human being. Without mobile phone life seems so dim and seemed to stop at one place. I have been using nokia e7 and its well helping me in daily life.

    Thanks,
