n. The number of telephones per 100 people in a region.

Example Citation:
"That potential is an area — comprised of Central America, South America and Mexico — with a population of 500 million and a relatively low 'teledensity' of 14 percent. That means that there are only 14 phones in use for every 100 people, said Leonard. By comparison, for every 100 people in the United States, there are 72 phones."
