CEC - Indian Telecom scenario.

I attended a session on the telecom scenario in India with Vodafone being the case study. There are few amazing statistics that I would like to mention which I came to know.

  1. Vodafone has presence in 62+ countries
  2. 1.2 Billion population of India is almost greater than the population of both USA and UK combined
  3. Only 20% of Indians use mobile phones. (There may be a scenario that one person may have multiple connections too)
  4. 87.9% of the Mobile users in India use only Prepaid
  5. Indian operators are providing the cheapest call rates compared to the entire world
  6. The target by 2010 is that there would be 500Mn Mobile users in India
  7. Vodafone just by acquiring Hutch got 30Mn subscribers which is almost 13% of its worldwide subscription

Aren't there facts amazing.

Will keep posting.
