“The government is investing $2 billion in the first phase of the digital transformation in India,” said Amit Mishra, the CEO of the Indian telecom industry body.
“The second phase will provide internet connectivity to more than half of the population by 2020.”
This phase of internet is expected to cover 10% of the country.
