India is one of the fastest growing economies in the world right now, but when it comes to Internet speed and connection quality, India still lags far behind where it needs to be. Average connection speeds are currently 2.8Mbps, the slowest within Asia. This is something that’s going to change significantly in 2017. With the introduction of 4G, and Reliance Jio having triggered a price war amongst the incumbent networks, the Internet market in India has been revolutionised.
This has created a whole new mobile Internet experience for consumers, and brought in tremendous business opportunities for Indian companies. Looking ahead, these are the trends we should expect in the Indian mobile Internet space in 2017.
