We had reported that India’s mobile subscriber base had reached 80 million. Telecom Regulatory Authority of India has come out with numbers on mobile and broadband user base. Here are the highlights:
– Total number of mobile users in the country as of January 2006 is 80.61 million
– Gross telecom user base is around 130 million, so teledensity nears 12 per cent in January compared to 11.43 per cent in February
– Broadband base touches one million (the broadband target as of December 2005 was 3 million – so massively fallen short)
– Total Internet subscribers base crosses 7.5 million (the total net users, acording to IAMAI, is 38.5 million). To be fair, total net subscriber target of 6 million by December 2005 was exceeded
