Egypt Crosses Over
Jamais Cascio, 14 Nov 05

Mobile phones are an engine of leapfrog development, and it looks like another developing nation is moving quickly towards cellular dominance. The number of mobile phone subscribers in Egypt now exceeds the number of land-line users, according to the Egypt Mobile Communications 2005 Report. At the end of September of this year, Egypt had 12 million mobile phone users and 10.3 million land line users. Analysts believe the difference will be more than 3 million by the end of the year; this will represent about 18 percent of the Egyptian population. The Report projects mobile phone growth to reach 21.1 million users by the end of 2008.
