Telecommunication in Georgia

Compared to the European Union, Georgia has a slight downturn in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +995, there were a total of 5.48 million connections in 2020. Among them were 5.10 million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 1.4 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.

In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, Georgia is back. Around 73% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 27% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).

With about 357,864 webhosts, Georgia is below the world's average by population. At the end of 2020, 13,020 million of these, or about 4 percent, were secured with SSL or comparable encryption.
