Mobile Phone Penetration

From the economist: “SOMETIME in the next few months, the number of mobile phones in use will exceed 3.3 billion, or half the world’s population. No technology has ever spread faster around the globe: the mobile phone took less than two decades to reach this degree of penetration. But the ever-restless wireless industry has already set its sights on getting the other half connected. Two recent reports analyse how to add the “next billion” to the subscriber list.”

I’m not too worried though because I can still get a digital land line bundled with my internet and cable for the low price of $99 a month*

*Only for the first six months.
