The number of mobile phone subscriptions in Egypt grew by 22 per cent to 91.35 million in the year to May, government figures showed on Sunday.

In May 2011, Egypt's three mobile operators, Etisalat Egypt, Mobinil and the Egyptian unit of Vodafone, had 74.77 million subscriptions.

Egypt is the Arab world's most populous country, with more than 80 million people, some of whom have more than one mobile subscription.

The number of subscriptions in April was 92.04 million.
