Vodafone India Defeats The Odds And Posts A Profitable Quarter
2012-05-24 13:21:00
The Indian Telecom Sector is not an easy industry to be in. Intense competition exists as there are so many players. Further, the Indian Average Revenue Per User (ARPU) is one of the lowest in the world, with rates being rock bottom. The TRAI doesn’t help, by making their life difficult with retro-active tax laws, re-auctions of  a year old spectrum. However, in this environment, Vodafone actually made a profit. It hasn’t been an easy road, with Vodafone losing money initially on their huge capital investment in India. Their income tax troubles with the Government compounded this. However, Vodafone Group has posted a 14% Growth in Operating Earnings, which now stands at Rs 9,740 Crores for 2011-12. Factors that have been attributed to this are good growth in voice minutes and a rising consumer base. Compared to 2010-11′s 3.85 Billion Pounds, Vodafone saw a surge in Revenue to 4.26 Billion Pounds. EBITDA too rose from 985 million to 1120 million pounds. “Se...

After Telenor Now Sistema Threatens To Exit India Due To TRAI’s Proposal
2012-05-21 08:41:00
Sistema, the Russian oil to telecom conglomerate has threatened to exit India if government accepts TRAI’s proposal to sell CDMA airwaves for more than 4,078 Crore per unit. This translates a 14 fold increase in comparison to what the company paid in 2008. This is serious issue because Norwegian telecommunications operator Telenor has also followed in Sistema’s steps and threatened to exit India for the very ‘same reason’. News of the exit from the Russian operator is a 180 flip as earlier it vowed to continue operations in India after Supreme Court declared one of its license null and void. One of the senior Sistema official said that there is a lot of pressure on the company to pull out of India, a country where it has already invested $3 Billion. It had purchased controlling stake in Shyam Telelink which was subsequently been renamed to Sistema Shyam. The company is better known to the public as MTS. Sistema has in the past pushed a petition in the Supreme ...

Does India Really Need Internet Regulation?
2012-05-21 06:42:00
The Internet is growing more and more relevant with each passing day. Even in a country like India, with a large percentage of rural population, people access the internet through a variety of mediums like their mobile phones. With widespread Internet proliferation around the world, the United Nations wants to take certain steps to either regulate the internet or allow governments to regulate the Internet. In fact, in the 66th session of the UN, India made a proposal to control the internet though a UN Committee. We all remember the Government’s attempts to regulate networks like Facebook and Twitter. Due to tremendous public pressure and ridicule, they reversed their stance saying they were misconstrued. Now, however, even people taking part in running the country are speaking out against Internet regulation. Rajeev Chandrasekhar, a Rajya Sabha MP, has written a letter to the Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, in which he asks him to withdraw India’s position of Governm...

‘In India, A Stunning 97% Of All Searches Take Place With Google&rsqu
2012-05-18 12:12:00
When you ask someone about Internet Search, by and large, most people associate it with one name, Google. Other competing search providers do exist, such as Yahoo, Bing and Rediff even Facebook could be a social search engine but Google continues to rule the roost. This holds true in our country too. The latest StatCounter Report has shown that in India, a stunning 97% of all searches take place with Google. This comes in a country with a severe case of Internet Explorer 6 hangover, and a large number of Yahoo and Reddiff users. It seems like most people still prefer Google as their search provider. Closest competitors are Yahoo with a 1% share and Bing with a share even less than 1%. To reach such a level of user penetration, Google must be doing something right. Their easy to use, aesthetically pleasing simple interface is what won users over in the infant days of Web Search. However, they have kept innovating.

Handset Market Grows In India Inspite of Worldwide Shrinkage In Sales.
2012-05-17 17:03:00
The Indian mobile phone market is very unique. It has been on a phase of constant growth since its advent, even now, as worldwide sales of mobile phones are taking a hit. The Times of India reports that India managed to skip the global mobile slowdown and grew by 6% instead! The worldwide sales have fallen by almost 2%. The research was done by Gartner Inc., a technology research firm. Source: According to the report, the smartphone market in India climbed by 17%. This has been the reason for the increased usage of Mobile Internet. Smartphones are always connected to the Internet and have better apps, this has driven app sales, development and the increase in social media activities in the country. The majority of the cell phones in the country are feature phones  and this might be due to the comparatively low prices they sell at. Smartphones prices are also taking a downward curve since manufacturers are now bundling low cost-medium spec devices with the Android pla...

Sathya Sai Baba: Symbol Of A Vastly Corrupt India Resistant To Reform
2012-05-16 01:22:00
For over a decade, many of Robert Priddy's and my articles have insisted that the changes Sathya Sai Baba promised for India (much less - and more megalomaniacally still - the world) have not happened. The combined forces of a huge array of India's power elites - including many successive Indian Prime Ministers and Presidents - who so often visited him - profoundly failed to go within light years of following his teachings about truth, right conduct, peace, love and non-violence. He himself failed to live up to them. Injustice, corruption, casteism, nepotism, military and police violence always were, and are as rife in India as ever they were. One of the difficulties former devotees and others who have worked to expose the crimes, misdemeanors and spiritual betrayals of Sai Baba and many of his core leaders has been the failure of the almost the entire Indian media. The honorable exception was India Today.

India Is Having Its Own SOPA Moment; The Internet Protests Against IT Act O
2012-05-09 09:23:00
The Internet has overtaken the Indian Government and now in a bid to stay relevant, it has increasingly resorted to policies and tactics which prevent the freedom of speech of Indian Citizens on the Internet. We have had quite a lot of drama since last year regarding Censorship and Objectionable Content. This time it is the IT Act of 2011, which has everyone in the Indian Internet Industry unanimously denouncing  it for its negligence of the fundamental rights provided by the Indian Constitution. The Act  have been questioned by a lone ‘Communist’ Member of Parliament, P.Rajeev. He has suggested that the Government consider the annulment of the ‘offending’ additions. The IT Act is really detrimental as it makes it very easy for any person to initiate the blocking of a website if it seen to be offensive, harmful, defamatory, obscene, hateful and generally objectionable. There is a high possibility that such complaints will not be objective enough and will result in a lot ...

Brazil Overtakes India To Become Number 2 In The Facebook World
2012-05-07 14:25:00
Brazil with more than 46+m Facebook user base has overtaken India as the second biggest country on Facebook. According to a report by a social analytical firm “Social Bakers” Brazil has registered a 22% increase in the last 3 months. India and Brazil have been in race for the second spot for long time now, while India has 45m+ and now sits on 3rd spot. This news throws light on tactical shift of social media consumption in the South American nation, as only in January 2011 did Facebook manage to overtake Google’s Orkut and become numero-uno social network in the country. Latin America is of great importance to Facebook, since reaching a user-base of 1 billion users will require the social networking giant to tap into the large reserves in this region and fend off the competition too.

Most Of Rural India Still Devoid Of Internet; Urban India Slightly Better
2012-05-07 11:20:00
India is a country of numbers. With over a billion people and counting, it is the dream scenario for any marketer. However, the stark reality is that an overwhelming majority of this billion strong population is still way more backward than we would have liked. This fact is glaringly evident to us when the parameter we study is Internet Penetration. According to a recent survey, Internet connectivity is said to have completely bypassed Rural India.  The number of people having an Internet Connection at home in Rural India is shockingly low, less than half a percent. A quote from a NSSO (National Sample Survey Organisation) Report for 2009-10 says, “At all India level only about 0.4 per cent of rural households had access to Internet at home as compared to about 6 per cent of urban households.” Per 1000 families, just 3.5 families could access Internet Services at home in Rural India. The situation in Urban India was considerably better, with 60 families per 1000 had access t...

India’s Internet Freedom Ranking May Fall Due To Sibal’s Antics
2012-04-27 10:53:00
The Internet is going through a lot of rapid changes globally and many Governments are trying to make sense of how best they can can curb piracy, anti-social and anti-nationalist sentiments coming from citizens. The web can be overwhelming for authorities because this is something they have repeatedly failed to control ever since its inception. According to Bridget Welsh, a Political Science Professor at the University of Singapore, the proposed curbing of Social Media websites by the Indian Government may result in the lowering India’s position on Internet freedom. Welsh have knowledge of the yet-to-be published Freedom on Internet Report 2012, which ranks countries according to their Internet Policies. Social Media services and networks allow Individuals to speak their mind in an open forum and as far as we are concerned, curbing such a freedom is a gross violation of a person’s civil rights.

The Indian cable TV industry will witness phenomenal growth in subscribers reveals a report from Media Partners Asia. Owing to the digitization of cable & tremendous growth experienced by the 6 major Direct To Home (DTH) Players, the number of users subscribing will grow 10 fold in next five years. Is this actual growth? Well, it’s not so easy to answer this owing to the current scenario. Quite recently, Government of India imposed a deadline on June 30th to get all old cable connections to the digital channel. This would bring transparency & accountability. In other words, Government could earn through taxes levied on the earnings. But that appears to be in limbo for now. India’s cable TV subscriber base is a lot higher than what is reported. Hence, the growth speculated may have already been achieved. It will only be officially revealed through such measures. However, the report justifies its findings by stating the rising number of Mergers & Acquisitions &...
