India initially embraced the internet with a degree of ambivalence. There take up of faster services was limited; however, there was tremendous enthusiasm among dial-up users and an estimated 60% of internet users were regularly accessing the internet via the country's more than 10,000 cybercafes. When it came to high-speed broadband access, for long time there was a reluctance to adopt what was on offer, especially within the corporate sector, and the growth of broadband remained relatively slow for some time.

By 2015 there were around 15.5 million fixed broadband subscribers a lowly penetration (by population) of slightly more than 1%. In the meantime, mobile broadband technologies had started to attract considerable interest in India. Having paid large licence fees on the back of the government's spectrum auctions, the operators were keenly promoting their mobile data services. Significant network rollouts had been completed and there was no doubt that this was accelerating the adoption of broadband. This report looks at the stage the development of broadband internet has reached in India and includes relevant statistics.

the fixed broadband market growth has slowed;
