Mobile Segment Dominates Indian Telecom Market, Says BuddeComm in Its Report Available at

12 Sep 2016 • by Natalie Aster

LONDON – India is still one of the swiftest growing and largest telecom markets globally despite some setbacks.

A number of positive signs of changes in the regulatory environment were seen over the last several years.

Operators expand their infrastructure and the country’s mobile market keeps on getting a large portion of the local capital expenditure.

India can boast a national telecom network of an enormous size. However, the fixed line marketplace in the country is underdeveloped to a great extent since the mobile segment is the dominant one. The overall penetration stood at slightly more that 2% in 2014, and it dropped to 1.9% in 2015.

In the meantime, the fixed-line penetration declined to less than 3%. Coverage in the country, nevertheless, is remarkable - 99% of the Indian population has access to a telephone.

Telecoms infrastructure has been receiving heavy investment over the last 10 years. Mobile broadband penetration has shown strong growth over the recent years, and growth is ignited by a strong and rapidly growing subscriber base.

BSNL is known as a market leader, but its share is the local marketplace is now much lower than it used to be 6 years ago.
