    • Telephone system:
      CIA data is apparently wrong. See correction forllowing parentheses.
      (600,000 telephones; 11 telephones/1,000 persons; large system by Third World standards but inadequate for present requirements and undergoing extensive upgrading)

      The number of phone lines is not 600K but rather 3.5 million
