February 20, Fineko/abc.az. The number of people using landlines is decreasing in Azerbaijan.

ABC.AZ reports that according to the State Statistics Committee, the number of landlines in apartments in 2021 reached 1,377,200, and in 2022 — 1,339,900.

This means more than 37,000 cuts per year.

But although the number of people using home phones has decreased, the number of Internet users has increased. The number of Internet users for every hundred people nationwide was 86.7% in 2021 and 88.1% in 2022.

They attribute the decrease in citizens' interest in using a home phone to a wide range of video calls and voice messages in mobile phones.
