The company also had 5.55 prepay customers, and 3.69 million customers under mobile virtual network operators. As of March 2018, the company provided a service for 29.56 million mobile accounts.

Post-paid plans increasing in popularity

By 2018, this figure skyrocketed to 72 percent of the nation’s 92.07 million subscribers.
