The rise of Indian telecom tower companies

January 12, 2013

The skylines of India’s cities—or even its towns and villages—have changed dramatically over the past 10 years, but one of the most striking differences has been the appearance of telecom towers: 30-70 meter-high structures that mostly crown the tops of the tallest buildings.
India’s telecom boom has been well charted. Some 18 years after the mobile phone first appeared on the Indian consumer stage, there are more than 900 million mobile phone users in a country of 1.2 billion—more people than have access to a toilet, according to a statistic often touted by development agencies, and three times the entire population of the US.
