Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) reported that the use of Internet through mobile phones is 14 times more than broadband. In India, people are using their mobile phones to log-on to the Internet, which is now increased from 16 million in 2006 to 38 million in 2007.

As per the figures from October 30, 2007, there were 2.69 million broadband subscribers. In the 22 million PC users, only 30-40 percent are accessing Internet on them. This shows that Internet access through mobile phones is at least six times more than through PCs. GSM operators as well as CDMA operators have registered double-digit growth in users accessing the Internet through mobile phones. Research firm Gartner stated that Indian mobile data revenue is expected to outpace that of voice services and contribute to about a fifth of total revenues by 2011, doubling year-on-year. Users are using their mobile phones to check their mails, search, downloading ringtones, wall papers, images, games and e-Ticketing.
