The Top Three Underperforming Telecommunications Markets

Pavel Marceux Profile Picture
Pavel Marceux Bio

The top three economies in the world that are underperforming in their telecommunications potential are India, Pakistan and Iran. India has over 1 billion mobile telephone subscriptions but only 3 percent of those subscriptions include mobile internet. Growing poverty is a problem in the country, keeping many consumers from purchasing mobile internet plans. Pakistan has a large population but suffers from cultural and religious opposition to certain technologies. Finally, Iran, which boasts an average population age of 28 and a growing economy, has a very small smartphone market hampered by various sanctions against the country.
