Recent Study: Long-distance optical fiber infrastructure in India: an analysis

New Fixed Networks research report from Ovum is now available from Fast Market Research

 
PRLog - Sep. 22, 2010 - Until recently, the extraordinary growth in the mobile industry and ever-increasing demand for capacity from the enterprise segment have ensured that long-distance connectivity is a premium resource in India. However, with a series of fiber investments from a host of newer players, the national long-distance market is heading towards a "bubble" as supply far exceeds the current demand for capacity. But international connectivity on certain routes still commands a premium in the market and there is scope for selective investments by operators, especially in routes to the Middle East and Asia-Pacific.
