Yes! Another proud achievement for us. We have joined the big guys. We are in the big league! we are…, hold on, I’m over-reacting here.

According to official MCMC statistics, every Malaysian owns a handphone now. There are 28.9 million registered users in Malaysia while the population is 27 million. So, minus the foreigners, mostly likely every Malaysian owns a handphone.  Last year it was 87.9 percent of the population.

It seem we are the first Asian country to achieve 100 percent, but the report quoted other countries like Japan, South Korea and Thailand also have achieved the same. Last I remembered, Thailand was an Asian country.

Of course, in reality, a person may have more than one handphone.
