The pace of India's mobile phone market growth is accelerating and the country is on track to surpass Russia and the United States in total subscribers. That is one of the conclusions of the updated 86-page report, India's Wireless Market: Model for the Next Phase of Global Wireless Expansion, released by Datacomm Research Co.

"The number of mobile phone subscribers added each month in India has more than tripled over the past year," said Chetan Sharma, president of Chetan Sharma Consulting and the report's author. "India passed Japan in total subscribers last month. Within the next few weeks, India will break through the 100 million subscriber barrier," he added.

The updated version of the report provides a comprehensive report on India's wireless market. The report describes the country's market, value chain, competition and regulation, and identifies the best and worst money-making opportunities.

The updated report concluded that India's wireless boom is largely the result of government decisions favoring competition. It added that the country will spend several billions on wireless infrastructure to accommodate subscriber growth, improve rural coverage, and add advanced services.
