25 Jul 2011

The total number of mobile phones in Belarus reached 10.45 million by the end of June this year, according to a statement from Pavel Petrulevich, deputy head of the Ministry of Communications and Informatisation (MoCI), as reported by e-belarus.org. Growth slowed in the first six months of this year though. The country reported 10.30 million mobile users at the start of this year and 9.69 million at the end of December 2009, he said.

Petrulevich also reported that Austrian firm Kapsch this month won a contract to supply equipment to facilitate the introduction of mobile number portability (MNP) in the country. As part of this, Kapsch is supplying necessary equipment for the central office that will coordinate MNP in Belarus.
