Then it began to fall gradually to approximately 70 billion in 2002, which was the same as the 1995 figure.
On the other hand, the popularity of both national and international calls on fixed line were raising through all of the period, starting with 38 billion minutes in 1995 and ending with 60 billion minutes in 2002.
On the other hand, the total number of minutes of national and international fixed line calls and mobile calls enjoyed an clearly upward trend throughout the period. The former started off steady at 38 billion in 1995 and subsequently reached a high of around 60 billion at the end of the period.
However, the most significant rising was noticed in mobile calls. Beginning with approximately 3 billion minutes in 1995, it raised to 45 billion minutes in 2002.
Meanwhile, the latter saw the most significant increase in the number of minutes of telephone calls. Its figure was lower than 10 billion in the first four years. However, it ended up the period at 45 billion, which was nine times higher than the 1995 level.
