India 2012: Telecom growth continues 2 Foreword The Telecom sector in India has witnessed unparalleled growth by global standards. In a little over a decade of wireless telephony, India has moved from a subscriber base of zero to becoming the second-largest market in the world after China. This growth would continue provided we have progressive policies that shall provide impetus to free flow of investment, ideas and technology that facilitate growth and evolution of this sector. The progress in the sector has been something to be proud of and it is often viewed as ample testimony to the India growth story. Several developments in the industry are afoot, which will be crucial to defining the state of this industry in times to come. Additional 2G spectrum has been recently allotted, allowing the entry of several new players — wherein a majority of them are also acquiring strategic international partners, commencing the globalization of Indian Telecom.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
