Telecommunication in Gabon
Compared to the European Union
, Gabon is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +241, there were a total of 2.60 million connections in 2016. Among them were 2.58 million million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 1.3 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.
In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, Gabon is back. Around 48% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 1% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).
With about 127.00 webhosts, Gabon is below the world's average by population. Back to overview: Gabon
