Telecommunication in India
Compared to the European Union
, India is massively lagging behind in the development of telecommunications. Under the country code +91, there were a total of 1.20 billion connections in 2018. Among them were 1.18 billion million mobile phones, which corresponds to an average of 0.87 per person. In the EU, this figure is 1.2 mobile phones per person.
In the expansion of broadband Internet connections, India is back. Around 34% of all residents have access to the Internet. Approximately 1% have their own fast Internet connection, which is at least faster than the previous ISDN (more than 2048 kbit/s).
With about 6.75 million webhosts, India is below the world's average by population. Back to overview: India
