In 2010 Mukesh Ambani’s Reliance Industries (RIL) had promised India a wireless broadband revolution. India expected to see the launch of 4G by 2012 but as expected all such big projects do get delayed. India expected to see its internet inflection point by 2014 (what is inflection point).
For internet entrepreneurs in India a very important topic of interest is – when will India see the big growth of internet users in India? When will India truly witness the internet inflection point? Today India has approximately 100 million PC internet and 75+ million mobile internet users. This is expected to grow to 350 million users by 2015, but if mobile/tablets take off in a big way the number could be bigger.
Indian has currently 9 million broadband subscribers. Currently only 8 people in 1,000 have broadband access in India. Pathetically low penetration. Will wireless broadband change this? I think it will.
