Imagine adding 2.5 million new customers — IN A SINGLE MONTH!
That’s what happened to India’s booming wireless phone sector in July. And that’s despite monsoon rains that wreaked havoc in Bombay, India’s largest city and a top market for cellular services. (I wonder how many more would have signed up, if it had been “beach weather?”)
Overall, mobile phone carriers had 60 million customers at the end of July. And don’t you know half of them will be sitting behind you at the movies or at the next table this weekend?
