TRAI has been regularly publishing the number of broadband subscribers. Its most recent report was released on 30th November. Instead of giving you a straight view, we have tried to visualize the trend from 2007 to 2001 for your understanding below.
- Maharashtra and Mumbai combine have been surging with an exponential growth in the number of connections
- Tamil Nadu and Karnataka come in a close second, but Andhra Pradesh has been steadily growing since 2008 at a growth rate of nearly 150%
- The biggest jump since 2008 has been shown by Kerala and is quite close to catching up with Delhi
- Punjab and Uttar Pradesh (including Uttaranchal) reflect identical numbers in 2010, after 2008
- Also interesting to see from the 2010 numbers is the jump in Rural subscribers in Kerala (Rural subscriber numbers were released only for BSNL). They make for 32% of the connections in 2010. This, we suspect, is consistent with the dense distribution of the population in the state.
