Color us surprised, it seems the market leader for cellular penetration
-- at least in the 30 "Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development," or OECD countries -- is Luxembourg. With some 153.7 subscribers per 100 people -- apparently attributed to multiple SIM cards per person -- they are knocking the socks of us over here where penetration is about 70 out of every 100. Other interesting tidbits include Japan
and Korea where 3G subscriptions surpass 2G and Canada which is next to last in penetration rates to Mexico. The compiled data covers the years between 1980 and 2005, so if you love this type of info -- we all know, nothing beats dropping these type of tidbits at a social gathering -- hit the read link to grab yourself a free copy.
