Internet penetration in India doubled in six months

Internet penetration in the country has doubled in the last six months, from a total subscriber base of 1,022,754 in March this year to 2,045,509 by September.

According to the figures released by ministry of information technology, Maharashtra has the maximum subscribers base of 619,524, which is 30 per cent of the total subscribers base in the country, followed by Delhi with 319,616 subscribers which accounts for about 16 per cent of the total base. Tamil Nadu is in the third spot with 291,032 subscribers, which are about 14 per cent of the national subscriber base.

However, figures show that while the subscribers have been growing in the comparatively forward states, the north-east states have been lagging behind. The top three states in the list— Maharashtra, Delhi and Tamil Nadu, accounts for more than 60 per cent of the total subscriber base.

Compared to this the entire north eastern belt including Manipur, Sikkim, Mizoram, Tripura, Nagaland and Arunachal Pradesh put together account for only 0.1 per cent of the total subscribers with only 2,495 subscribers.
