H12007 tele-statistics shows than Denmark has more than 6 million mobile phone subscribers, a figure that exceeds the total population of 5.4 million people
The Danish National IT and Telecom Agency has published its H1 2007 telestatistics, which shows that Denmark has more than 6 million mobile phone subscribers, a figure that exceeds the total population of 5.4 million people. The number of mobile phone subscribers has increased by 7% in a year, while the number of fixed net subscribers decreased by 8% to 3 million.
 
Denmark has Europe's highest spread of broadband. By the end of H1, there were 1.9 million broadband connections, corresponding to 34.2 per 100 inhabitants, an increase of 130,000 compared to H2 2006.
 
Jørgen Abild Andersen, director of the National IT and Telecom Agency says: "Mobile phones are a central part of everyday life for Danes. Denmark has Europe's highest spread of broadband. On top of that, we have constantly reducing prices and increasing speed. But the National IT and Telecom Agency is also very aware that Denmark is not leading Europe in terms of high speed and low prices. It is a trend we are following closely."
 
Data transfer via mobile phones has increased sixfold. In H1 2007, 79 million MB data was transferred via mobile phones, compared to 13 million in the same period the previous year. The news was reported by national daily newspaper Berlingske Tidende and in a press release from the National IT and Telecom Agency.
