Now Indians are Eating 'Data' not 'Atta', India has reached Top in Terms of Data Consumption

Posted on: 04 Jan, 2018 Tags   Data Reliance Jio Ravi Shankar Prasad

IndiaNewsonWeb: 04 Jan, 2018, India has been one of the few countries in the world where the number of people using internet data is growing very fast. Consumption of data in the country is increasing in such a way that now people are consuming an average of 1.6 GB of data every month, whereas 3 years ago it was just 70 MB per month. That is, during the last three years, there has been an increase of about 23 times in Modi government.

This information was given to the Parliament in response to a written question by the IT minister Ravi Shankar Prasad on Wednesday. He said that according to the TRAI figures, in June 2014, a consumer was using only 70 mega-byte data per month, which increased to 1600 MB in September 2017.

The number of customers using the Internet has also increased from 259 million to 429 million in these 3 years. Ravi Shankar Prasad also informed Parliament that digital transactions in the country are also growing at a very fast pace. In December 2015, only 61 crores transactions were done through digital transaction, which has reached 153 crores in October 2017. Ravi Shankar Prasad said that the government is taking several steps to take the reach of the Internet village to village.

Last month, the CEO of the Policy Commission, Amitabh Kant had told that 150 million GB per month with mobile data consumption, India has reached the top in terms of data consumption. India's mobile data consumption is more than the combined consumption of China and the US.
