Ok, not dollars, but people.
Yes, there are three billion GSM subscriptions. Officially. So reckons the trade body, 3G Americas.
Although they have negated to supply the name and winning photo of the person who was the 3,000,000,000th GSM subscriber. Bit of a shame.
Whenever I start thinking about the amount of people using GSM, I then start thinking just how many millions of people don’t actually have enough food to eat or clean water to drink.
