The Mobile Internet Explosion In India

Written by

Came across this really interesting presentation about the growth of mobile internet in India by Mashable here – Mostly Mobile: How the Internet Is Consumed in India [INFOGRAPHIC]

India Internet Access Via Mobile Devices

Three factoids that strike me as being interesting: 1.71% of India’s population uses mobile phones – that is 858,370,000 individuals!

2. While there are so many mobile phones, internet penetration is still very low – as low as 8%.

3. 59% of India’s internet users only ever access the internet via mobile devices.

It’s interesting because coupled with the fact that 50% of India’s population is below the age of 25, most using mobile devices, that are internet-capable, and you have the perfect environment to use those devices as learning agents. An entire generation of Indians, will no longer associate the internet with computers, but with phones/tablets. So while some of the electronic learning revolution may have passed India by, it will be on the forefront of learning that leverages mobile technologies. I have no doubt in my mind that India will emerge as one of the leading markets in consuming and developing learning technologies based around mobile platforms.
