Mobile phone subscriptions in UAE on the rise
The number of mobile phone subscriptions in the UAE is on the rise.
That’s according to the Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA), which has revealed that more than 172,000 new subscriptions were registered in the first four months of this year.
This means there are now around 20 million active mobile subscriptions in the country.
The TRA says the growth is driven largely by an increase in pre-paid subscribers, which totals around 16.7 million.
Mobile services account for over 80 per cent of the revenue generated by the country’s two service providers.
