A recent report from TRAI (India’s Telecom Regulatory Authority) points out that India is set to soon become the world’s second largest mobile phone market.
Current figures (February end) show that the largest is undoubtedly China, with 540.5 million users. The US has 260.5 million wireless users, and India is third with 250.9 million.
Considering that Indian subscriber growth is around 8 million users per month, compared with US figures of 2 million, it won’t be long until India becomes the second largest.
