Who are you to say that?


#8

mostly peoples have more than one sim activitied so actul numbers of cell phonue consumers would be much less


#9

if they honestly block all the 'non-registered' numbers, the total number of users might fall down at atleast 75% of what they're claiming.

and even ths 88million number doesn't seem that 'real', i mean i've got 5 sims from all the 5 operators in the company (all registered in my name) ... now i dunno how did they count those 5 sims of mine in the servey? they counted me as 5 users, or my 5 sims as a single user?


#10

Since it's a common practice to issue many sims on a single ID card, they must have counted every sim as a different user to reach that impressive figure.
