A World With More Phones Than People
A new report from the World Bank details the astounding growth of mobile since the year 2000. Then — just 12 years ago — there were less than a billion mobile subscriptions worldwide. Today, there are more than 6 billion and the count will “will soon exceed that of the human population,” according to the Bank (it is common in many countries for one person to own multiple SIM cards). Three-quarters of the world population now has access to a mobile phone.
