Delhi, New Delhi, India, 2007/03/05 - The two technologies namely GSM & CDMA have immense scope in Indian mobile handset market, as telecom operators in India continue to come up with innovative plans to lure customers.
The mobile industry in India believes the market still offers loads of opportunity for both GSM & CDMA technologies. While the service providers have been launching various plans to lure customers, it’s still a big question as to which of the two technologies will lead eventually.
There’re twelve operators in India where the population has crossed one billion. Of these, eight are GSM providers. India is the most competitive telecom market in the world. The Telecom tariff in India is just 2 cents/minute as against 4 cents in China. This is something that’s absolutely in favor of the Indian mobile industry.
Boom in telecom has completely changed the teledensity scenario in India. With companies continuously penetrating deeper in to the interiors of this country, teledensity is expected to grow further in the years to come. As per industry estimates, GSM subscriber base rose by 81% year-on-year in October 2006. However, CDMA subscriber base has more than doubled compared to the previous year. This shows that both the technologies have been quite successful in increasing the mobile usage in the country, and will likely continue to do so in the near future as well.
As per RNCOS report on “Mobile Handset Market In India (2006)”, India has emerged as one of the booming mobile markets throughout the globe. For the 1st time after 1995 – when mobile services were launched in the country - India has pulled alongside China. India added 4.5 million new mobile phone subscribers during December 2005.
