So are there 84,458 mobile broadband users in Bhutan? This number represents around 30% of B-Mobile customers, and from empirical observations, I find it highly unlikely that 3 out of 10 phone-owners use their phone to browse the Internet. My guess is that the figure represents the number of GPRS/EDGE-provisioned customers, which can loosely be translated into "mobile internet subscribers", but not the actual number of users - people using their phone or data card to connect to the Internet. The question is: How many B-Mobile subscribers actually pay for data usage?
