About India Telecom Summit

Telecom – one of the fastest evolving industry of the decade has helped consumers across countries communicate seamlessly and shrink global borders. This decade witnessed a quick transformation from landline phones to internet penetration and GSMs. Smartphones and wireless devices have enhanced consumer and corporate experiences beyond anyone’s expectations and as a result telecomm is one of the cash-rich industries in the world.

Indian telecom industry has been on a steadfast growth albeit minor challenges like the failure to develop 2g and 3g technologies on time. From cost-effective calling rates to multiple international, private and government telecom operators and government’s initiative to boost telecommunication across the country, we are a part of the era of smart phones and 5G technologies. The industry now operates on the watch word ‘Converge, consolidate and collaborate.’
