Oct 2008: Projections For 10M Broadband; India Adds 10.42 M Wireless; Crosses 5M Broadband

Projection 10 Million Broadband Subscribers India

In October 2008, India added 10.42 million wireless subscribers - up from 10.07 million added in September. The wireless subscriber base is now 325.73 million, up from 315.24 million at the end of September. Importantly, and as expected, India crossed the 5 million Broadband connections mark, ending October with 5.05 million Broadband subs, up 150,000 for the month. The teledensity is now 31.50%, though the gradual decline in wireline isn't helping.  Download for October 2008: -- CDMA Circle and Operator Data  -- GSM Circle and Operator Data -- TRAI Report On Broadband and Wireless When Will India Reach 10 Million Broadband Subscribers? We've done some projections for when India will hit 10 million subscribers, taking two situations - if the average broadband subscriber addition is 173,000 per month (average of last six) and if the growth in broadband subscriber base is 3.92% (average of last six months): This situation will obviously change as wireless broadband takes root - both over 3G and WiMax. Broadband over EVDO is already operational in Bangalore, and from what we've heard - in Hyderabad. One should also keep in mind that there may be an overlap between wireless broadband users and wireline - the early adopters are likely to have both.
