The market for 3G in the country is expected to be huge with over 65 million wireless subscribers, who
use their handsets to access data services on the Web. These subscribers are currently using mobile
handsets which are internet-enabled and are potential broadband subscribers with the deployment of
advanced wireless technologies such as 3G. According to Indian Cellular Association (ICA) about 5% of
mobile users already have handsets that can work on 3G spectrum. In addition, out of all those
possessing the 3G enabled handsets the number of people who would use 3G services would be
determined by the quality of content available. Unlike most other countries, we are looking at 3G
services not only as premium services but also as an extension of 2G. Since our broadband penetration is
abysmal, 3G would provide a much required boost to it. Given that mobile phones are much cheaper as
compared to PCs, the demand for broadband on mobile is expected to be much greater. More
importantly, 3G will solve problems more in rural India. Therefore the shift towards 3G would depend
on affordability of handsets along with the quality of content available.
