Socio Economic Impact of mobile phones in India

Socio Economic Impact of mobile phones in India

Ratings: (0)|Views: 107 |Likes:
If we consider the mobile telecommu- nications industry – it has grown dramatically on a global scale. For many developing countries the mobile sector has become one of the critical indicators of their economic development. What is more, because cellular technology requires relatively low investment to operate, it provides a unique opportunity for developing countries (Gao and Rafiq, 2009). Technological innovations in satellite, optical fibre, mobile technology, the Internet and the World Wide Web have greatly reduced commu- nications costs and enabled improved exchange of information between different people in the world. (Lam and Shiu, 2010). However in, countries like India, there are millions of people who are still unable to use cellular technologies due to poverty and low income. Mobile operators that operate in those countries have to come up with low cost handsets and very cheap services in order to enable rural populations to get practical access to these technologies.
