Telecommunication in Nauru

Compared to the European Union, Nauru is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +674, there were a total of 10,000 connections in 2020. Among them were 10,000 million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 0.93 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.

In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, Nauru is back. Around 57% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 9% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).

With about 8,162 webhosts, Nauru is well above the world's average.
