Telecommunication in Guam

Compared to the European Union, Guam is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +671, there were a total of 166,000 connections in 2019. Among them were 98,000 million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 0.62 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.

In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, Guam is back. Around 81% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 2% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).

With about 23 webhosts, Guam is below the world's average by population.
