Abstract

The overwhelming growth of telecommunications in India can largely be attributed to the liberalization of the sector and the prolonged efforts of the licensor, the regulator and the Industry. Many of us have lived through an era of telecommunications when simply acquiring a fixed telephone line could take up to a whole year, and may be even longer depending on where it was to be situated. The same process can now be completed in no more than a few days. The ubiquitous availability of telecommunications services is often taken for granted, and we tend to forget about a time when owning a fixed line was considered a privilege.
