The Top Three Underperforming Telecommunications Markets


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.

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.
