DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 23, 2019--

The India internet subscriber base stood at 493.9 million, and it is expected to reach 916.6 million in 2027 with a CAGR of 6.3% from 2019 to 2027.

Internet services especially communication and entertainment services will continue to fuel the growth of data consumption in India.
