There have been two major growth areas in telecommunication services in the previous two years ‐ mobile and broadband. Mobile and broadband subscriptions together accounted for 74% of all communication subscriptions in 2007. Mobile alone accounts for 61% of all subscriptions while standard phone lines have dropped to 26%. This is a dramatic turnaround from the year 2000 when there were more fixed line subscribers than mobile. Telecommunications investment reached USD 185 billion in 2007, an increase of 9% each year from 2005. Investment grew over the past four years, in sharp contrast to the strong investment declines observed between 2000 and 2003.
