SUMMARY

This EY report which examines the role of broadband connectivity and its impact on society explains that India is the main consumer of data across the globe though there around 65% of people in the country are not online.

Broadband is making a significant contribution towards development in society and is the gateway to digitalization and making an impact on a country's sectors. Mobile connectivity has become a legal right in Finland while Canada considers that high-seed broadband is basic to the proper quality of life. In India, mobile broadband is a tool to empower citizens, while in general is transforming ordinary lives.

An important advance has been made on connectivity, the study suggests, but there are still a few unresolved challenges that hinder the growth of mobile broadband. There is room for improvement when it comes to network coverage, the paper adds. According to recent studies, 94% of the world's population lives within range of a 2G mobile signal but just two-thirds of the world’s population within access of a 3G signal, and less than half have 4G access.

The paper also discusses the role of the Internet of the Things and points out how M2M is being adopted by companies to boost their revenues. Its applications across several sectors are making new business models emerge while it supports economic growth and helps to create jobs.

According to this study, a hyper-connected ecosystem will make data consumption increase substantially. Therefore, the development of the appropriate broadband infrastructure is also key to digital transformation in India.
