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.
