It might not be a surprice but India is booming, the country might only be a sub-continent, but it is a mega-country to be in regards of internet usage, but the rise is slower than expected. According to a recent “India Online Overview report” done by eMarketer India has “only” reached 10.5 million broadband households by 2011. This is not according to the goals of the Indian government that declared 2007 the “Year of Broadband,” setting a goal of 20 million broadband users in three to four years.
eMarketer also estimates that 25.5 million Indians used the Internet at least once a month in 2006 and expects India’s online population to reach 33.2 million in 2007 and 71.6 million by 2011.
