The Cellular Operators Association of India (which includes most of India’s GSM telecom operators) has reported an increase of 17.1 million GSM connections in the country for the month of November 2010, up 3.49% for the month.This is much higher than the number of connections added in October 2010 (14.6 million). Then again, we don’t know exactly how many connections are active or multi-SIM. Telecom operator and circle-wise data (with inaccurate figures for RCOM and Tata Teleservices removed):
