1.2.2 Indian telecommunication sector India is the fastest growing telecommunications field in the world, with a projected telephone penetration of one billion telephones by 2015 (Deloitte, 2013).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
