2007: The Impact of Mobile Communications

Mobile communications allows people to stay in touch, access services and information instantly and get help in emergencies. In this way, it contributes to social inclusion. In addition, mobile communication has a wider impact on society.

In 2007 Telenor commissioned Deloitte to carry out a study of our markets in Bangladesh, Malaysia, Pakistan, Thailand, Serbia and Ukraine. This study revealed a close correlation between mobile penetration and GDP growth as well as a range of positive impacts in other areas, such as health and education and improving conditions in rural areas.
