The number of mobile users in India is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.4 percent to 990.2 million, covering about 71 percent of the country’s population, by 2020 from 798.4 million last year, according to a report by networking giant Cisco.

Also, mobile data traffic generated is forecast to grow 12-fold to reach 1.7 Exabytes (about 430 million DVDs) per month by 2020, driven by availability of cheaper smartphones and affordable data tariffs, said Cisco’s Mobile Visual Networking Index released. Mobile data traffic was about 148.9 Petabytes (34 million DVDs worth of data) per month in 2015. “With the ever-increasing billions of people and things that are being connected, mobility is the predominant medium that’s enabling today’s global digitisation transformation,” Cisco Vice President Service Provider Marketing Doug Webster said.
