India’s telephone infrastructure has improved of late because it has taken the wireless route. Nearly everyone has a mobile phone these days. In fact, the mobile companies are targeting both the rich and the poor, and their ads emphasize that you don’t have to be rich to afford a mobile. Most people buy pay-as-you-go services, which are generally cheaper. An interesting addition to the telecom mix I have noticed since my last visit three years ago is WLL (Wireless Local Loop) phones.
