Mobile phone subscriptions (000s): 2004

I created this visualisation based on ITU data for mobile phone subscriptions in 2004 and 2009. I wanted to compare and understand the growth (and where exactly this was taking place). I love seeing Nigeria and Mexico flying up the ranks and India exploding onto the scene while Japan seems to fade a little. Of course China sits pretty while the U.S seems to be “edged out” slightly.
