As India feels the shockwaves of the so-called '2G scandal', the operators are busily rolling out their 3G networks.

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.

Key highlights
• Into 2011, growth in India’s mobile market was continuing in its boom mode;
• By April 2011 the country had 827 million mobile subscribers, for a penetration of 69%;
• The mobile market was continuing to expand at an annual rate in excess of 40% into 2011;
• GSM was strengthening its position as the dominant mobile technology with 85% of the mobile subscriber market, as CDMA slipped further behind;
• The number of broadband Internet subscribers is finally on the increase, reaching 12 million for a penetration of 1% by population as at April 2011;
• DSL, whilst holding around 85% of the local broadband market, was steadily losing market share to other non-DSL broadband platforms, especially to wireless broadband platforms;
• After auctioning 3G spectrum licences in 2010, India was finally witnessing the large scale roll-out of 3G networks by operators across the country coming into 2011;
• The 3G auction delivered US$14.6 billion in revenue to the government and was certainly an unqualified success in this respect;
• An equally high profile auction of wireless broadband spectrum followed the 3G auction in 2010 and pumped even more energy into an already invigorated wireless broadband market;
• This auction raised another US$8.2 billion in revenue for the government.
