India’s mobile subscription base to exceed 1.4 billion by 2022: report
PTI JUNE-2017: Global mobile subscriptions are growing at around 4% year-on-year, reaching 7.6 billion in the first quarter. India grew the most in terms of net additions during the quarter (+43 million), followed by China (+24 million), Indonesia (+10 million), Pakistan (+5 million) and Nigeria (+3 million). The strong subscription growth in India was mainly due to an attractive “welcome offer” by Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, with free voice and data. These are the key findings from the Ericsson Mobility Report released on Wednesday in New Delhi.
