Last few months have seen a great augmentation in the number of people using mobile internet in India. Talking about the month of October 2013, 86 million users in India were found accessing Internet through mobile. And this number is believed to reach its double in just a span of six months.
Recently, Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) did a research and generated a report that suggests that the number of people using internet on their mobile handset is expected to reach 155 million by March this year. And within next three months i.e. till June this year it is believed to reach 185 million. So if you evaluate, about 100 million new users are going to be added in only eight months since the October data. The number of people accessing internet on mobile had reached 110 million in the month of December 2013, as per this report.
“The number of mobile internet users is going to reach 155 million in India by the end of March 2014, and 185 million by June 2014, maintaining a quarter-on-quarter growth of 20 per cent,” a report by IAMAI and IMRB International said.[useful_banner_manager banners=25 count=1]
