Abstract: Abstract This paper examines the adoption of cellular mobile telephony at the district level and the mobile subscription growth rate at the national level in Nepal. The findings suggest that districts that are characterized by higher per capita income, population density, and usage of electricity have higher adoption levels of mobile telephony. Positive spatial autocorrelation as well as positive feedback and spillover effects are observable with reference to mobile service adoption. At the national level, the mobile subscription growth rate is positive and mobile telephony subscription should grow in the short-run.
