India had nearly 900 million telephone connections at the end of August, signifying a tele-density of 75. 866 million of these were mobile connections, of which 70% were active subscribers. Urban mobile tele-density was 158. There are still ample growth opportunities for mobile services providers in rural areas. Reduced growth rates (less than 1% increase per month) reflect increasing saturation of urban markets.
