The Indian government target for telephone users by the end of 2007.
India became the fifth in the world to
record a mobile subscriber base of 100 million, according to the
Indian government (TRAI). The
cheap call rates at less than 2 U.S. cents a minute spurred growth
in the world's fastest growing wireless market.
India also doubled its total
telephone user base to 150 million from 75 million in just two
years, taking teledensity, the proportion of phone owners for every
100 people, to 13.54 percent.
