Morocco has more mobile phone subscriptions than people, official statistics

Morocco has 46.67 million mobile phone subscribers, that is more than the entire population estimated at 40 million people.


The latest figures released by telecoms regulator ANRT show that mobile phone penetration rate last year was 131.14%, noting that subscriptions in mobile phone services operated by the three main companies rose 20.54% last year.


Landlines totaled 2.05 million in 2019, with a penetration rate of 5.7%, ANRT said in a statement.


The ANRT has lately ordered market leader, Maroc Telecom, to pay 3.3 billion dirhams ($340 million) to the state due to its abuse of its dominant position in the market.


Following the sanction, Wana dropped a case it has brought against Maroc Telecom at a Moroccan commercial court over unfair competition.
