Some 525 million people in India subscribe to broadband – either by mobile or fixed line services – a rise of 3.18% from October to November 2018.
“India is the largest consumer of data globally, surpassing China, USA and Japan. Mobile communication has emerged as a frontrunner in accelerating India’s digital transformation. However, over 65% of Indians are still offline, outlining the untapped potential of broadband,” said EY in its report with CII, #Broadband2020 – Unlocking a Trillion Dollar Digital Economy.
