1.10 Recent and projected changes in the telecommunications environment (In India)




1.10.1 Basic telecom services:

From the early 1990, Indian government has been taking steps to open telecom Service sector. In 1994, telecom was privatization by the government in order to improve the teledensity of 1 per 100 to around 14 per 100 as per the global standings. By 2001, the teledensity improved to 2.8. Indian telecom promises a growth in opportunities for business in future. Gartner Inc projects India's telecom by a 19% growth by 2006, but the other constraint is the investment issue of around $26 billion between 2001 and 2006, as estimated by the KPMG Consultants. The major telecomm giants are the Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Ltd (MTNL) and the Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd (VSNL), which are partly owned by the government. The other private telecomm companies include Reliance Telecom, Tata Teleservices, Bharti Telenet, Hughes Tele, HFCL Infotel and Shyam Telelink. The impact of competition and new technological changes hopes to enable an improved hand on the teledensity of India.



1.10.2 Cellular mobile services:

In 1992, was the year for rapid Mobile Revolution in India, as the government permitted the entry of private sector. Based on revenue-sharing policy, several telecoms Co., in competition of market and technology, grew stronger. Now the cellular mobile services account for 20.5% of the Telephone connections in India.



Improvement in mobile Services is attributed by increasing competition, facility enhancement (such as WAP, internet services, mms, games), declining prices and increased pre-paid penetration. According to research firm Gartner, India has one of the highest chum rates in Asia Pacific region which is around 3.5-6%, as a result of high competition in cellular market. A high chum rate is a feature of mature markets in which the operators attract customers from their competitors as an entire decline in market. The current main players of the Indian Mobile Communication are as follows:
