Mobile subscriptions in Azerbaijan

Mobile network market

In December 2005, Azerbaijan had 2 million subscribers in total, a 25% penetration rate. In 2014, Azerbaijan has over 10 million subscribers in total and 130% penetration rate. Current population is 9 902 716 people.

Operator Azercell maintained its position as market leader, but its earlier dominance was being slowly eroded and market share had eased back to around 40%, down from more than 50% in years past. The second and third ranked operators, Bakcell (33%) and Azerfon (25%) were both throwing out challenges to Azercell’s market share if not its number one ranking. (Note: There are some inconsistencies in the available subscriber statistics for Azerbaijan, but the overall trend appears evident.)
