India continues to be one of the fastest growing major telecom markets in the world. It is also one of the largest. Sweeping reforms introduced by successive Indian governments over the last decade have dramatically changed the nature of telecommunications in the country. The mobile sector has grown from around 10 million subscribers in 2002 to pass the 750 million mark by the end of 2010 and the market was growing strongly into 2011. The boom in the mobile industry is expected to continue at least into the medium term. The fixed-line market, however, which had grown strongly for a while, has been experiencing zero and negative growth of late. in the meantime, there has been a fresh effort made to promote broadband internet access throughout the country; after a period in which broadband development languished – and the government became concerned – there was new hope for a serious expansion phase in this segment of the market.
