ICT stat of the day

This page in:

The World Bank's handy annual Little Data Books were released earlier this month. I came across some interesting stats from the Little Data Book on ICT. Between 2000 and 2007, internet subscribers per 100 people in low-income countries grew from only .1 to .8, but mobile cellular subscriptions per 100 people grew from .3 to an amazing 21.5. If you want to reach the poorest countries in the world, it looks like mobile phones are your best bet. No wonder that mobile money and insurance via SMS have taken off.
