Government rulings might result in a bandwidth boom in India
Internet service subscribers in the country can confirm that there is certainly a lack of bandwidth in the Indian market. Most ISPs in India promise the world but only manage to deliver a percentage of speeds.

Hmm, let's see its because

late last year, the Indian government accepted the recommendations for the re-sale of bandwidth[/b]
which

will enhance competition in international private leased circuits through the entry of resellers, who will be non-facility based operators[/b]
so

There will be a price reduction in the cost of bandwidth[/b]
because currently India

only has three submarine cable companies which supply bandwidth to various ISPs in the country. These are Tata group-owned VSNL, Reliance-owned Flag telecom and Bharti Tele-ventures.[/b]

heh. it was an article on businessweek. i think they are making it easier for more players to enter the segment of purchasing bandwidth and reselling in the market to other ISPs.it all looks good on paper. it would require some balls for any of these ISPs to actually plan to provide cheap fast broadband connectivity to the end user.or this might just result in higher profit margins for the players involved as the last mile connectivity is still largely controlled by bsnl/mtnl.

And finally a possible answer to WHY

"they" will allow more competition.
