Burundi Mobile Users Up 19% To 1.98 Mln in 2011
According to Burundi’s national telecoms regulator, the Agence de Regulation et de Controle des Telecom (ARCT), the number of mobile phone subscribers in Burundi grew by 19 percent to 1.98 million in 2011 from the previous year, thanks to investment in new technology and aggressive marketing by mobile operators.  The annual ARCT report said that most operators now offer a 3G service, others are providing SIM cards for USD 1 and handsets for USD 10, and all this has contributed to a fast-growing mobile telephone industry.
Burundi has five active mobile operators:
 U-com - owned by Egypt's Orascom. The biggest player with 1.227 million subscribers
State- owned ONAMOB
Lacell SU from Nepal.
 The nation of 8 million people had 1.67 million mobile users in 2010, up from 1.08 million in 2009.
