Saudi Arabia Gets Wired

Due to strict government intervention, Saudi Arabia sat by and watched as the rest of the world went online. The country has now licensed 37 ISPs and expects to have 85,000 citizens online by the end of 1999.

Internet connections have been available in Saudi Arabia only since the beginning of 1999, but the country has an estimated 112,500 Internet users, according to Dabbagh Information Technology Group.

Local access attracted more than 26,000 subscribers in the first four months of availability. There are now 45,000 Internet accounts in the nation.
