It is official; India has more than 300 million subscribers

September 24, 2008

TRAI Press Release was out today (Sep 24, 2008)

The total number of wireless (mobile) phone subscribers is 305+ million at the end of August 2008!

Interestingly the landline subscribe base that was 46 million in 2005 when mobile phones “crossed over” has slowly declined to 38 million today!

India is adding 300,000 subscibers a day (9 million a month in August 2008)!

Interesting times indeed
