Broadband Internet Growth Pitiful in India

Broadband Internet penetration is just not making headway in India.

According to the mandarins at the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India, the country added a mere 20,000 new broadband subscribers in October 2007 taking the total broadband subscribers to 2.69 million.

The broadband picture in India looks even bleaker when you consider that the TRAI defines broadband as anything higher than a piffling 256Kbps download.
