Mobile broadband subscriptions per 100 inhabitants

Show all indicators of Access


Mobile broadband penetration, the number of subscriptions per 100 inhabitants to mobile network services offering speeds of 256 Kbps or more (such as HSPA and LTE networks), provides a measure of the uptake of mobile broadband technology by the population. Figures relate to the number of handset‐based and computer‐based (USB/dongles) mobile‐broadband subscriptions to the public Internet that are regarded as active, due either to including a recurring subscription fee for data/Internet access or the subscriber having accessed the Internet in the last three months.
