Four Billion Cell Phone Subscriptions Predicted by The End of The Year

The International Telecommunications Union predicts that by the end of this year there will be four billion cell phone subscriptions. Much of this growth coming from the countries with developing economies. They stress that this does not mean that four billion people will have cell phone subscriptions as some have more than one cell phone.

Still, it is an impressive jump from 3.3 billion subscriptions at the end of last year.

"The number of mobile phone subscriptions in the world will reach four billion by the end of the year driven by growth in developing economies, the International Telecommunications Union said Friday.
Continued progress in 2008 is chiefly due to the growth in major developing markets such as Brazil, Russia, India and China.
