Mukesh Ambani does everything at a very large scale, thankfully the internet connectivity has been on his radar. 100 m internet users in 100 days!
One of the most whinned topic in the Internet industry in India is its ‘penetration’. I have mentioned in several posts of my blog that many localities in Bangalore don’t have wired broadband service. The service of USB data cards are just about ok, I use it only if I have to, else prefer to postpone my work.
According to the press release from White House, Presidential Memorandum: Unleashing the Wireless Broadband Revolution, President Obama has signed a memorandum in support of freeing up 500 MHz of spectrum for mobile broadband services.
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.
