Denmark heads for the international IT super league  

Official first half year figures show massive growth in mobile and internet usage

According to new figures released today by the Danish IT & Tele Authority, mobile and internet usage is streaking ahead, in line with the government's objective to place Denmark in the international IT super league. Data for the first six months of 2002 shows the following startling statistics: almost 300,000 new private internet subscriptions, 200,000 new mobile telephone subscriptions and 906 million SMS messages sent. And this from a population of little over 5 million.


The internet subscription total now stands at nearly 2.3 million compared with almost 1.4 million two years ago, while mobile phone subscriptions have swelled from around 3 million to 4.2 million. SMS messages sent have soared by 216% in the same period. Interestingly, this meteoric growth has not affected fixed net telephony subscriptions which have remained relatively static at around 3.9 million. The news is reported in Jyllands-Posten.
