One more step ahead in the making of Indian Broadband Economy…
Growing up as a kid in the ‘70s, one thing that stood out often as symbol of status for the great Indian middle-class was the famed four-wheeler Ambassador. While inside the house, the babus [Indian bureaucracy] also sought two things that were symbols of ‘having arrived’: one was the famous black rotary analogue phone and the other was the 15Amps thick wired cable for the All Electric Home.

The industry needs to move on
The series of controversies associated with the 2G spectrum scam is all the news that is seen, heard or read these days. The media outrage and analysts’ comments go to show that all is not well with the politics-business nexus. Naturally, the telecom sector is hugely impacted, not so much in terms of growth but in terms of losing face. The continuing duel between the two technology camps is only vitiating the...
