In Part 1 of this series, we saw the need for increasing the broadband penetration in India. Continuing on the theme, we need to recognise that the consumer electronics sector is in a transition as service driven model begins to dominate. While assessing the road ahead,I covered the perspective that it is found that for India to emerge as a technological power it needs to provide 50 million broadband connections in the next five years. The growth so far has largely been confined to urban areas, as most operators think rural connectivity is not economically viable. The answer is a combination of policy initiatives and innovation on technological and business models. The GOI itself has an ambitious target and expects the usage to rise to 40 million Internet subscribers and 20 million broadband subscribers by the end of 2010 in India (In the Indian context,download speeds of over and above 256 kbps are usually taken as a broadband connection).
