Everybody in Jamaica has a Cell Phone

According to the Jamaica Gleaner, there are 2.76 million cell phone (aka mobile or wireless) accounts in Jamaica. That leaves about 20,000 people (ie, children) without cell phones.
 
In case you missed the memo, Jamaica is a poor country. Literally dirt poor for many. And yet there are more cell phone accounts than adults!?
 
By comparison, the penetration rate is 60% in Canada. Canadians are among the richest people in the world...
