The telecom industry around the world is redefining communication services more frequent than ever. The band width promised by never technologies is setting new bench mark rapidly. Every new technology is superior to the former one by 100 or 1000 times. India is lagging behind the world in technology adoption and this may get aggravated if we do not leapfrog to future technologies. India is currently seeing the growth of 3G services and we are hopeful of the success of the 4G services in the future. Recently the leaders of the world’s wireless industry showcased their next big idea -5C. We could get too focused on the short term and develop myopic vision. The big question then would be- Can India be left behind in the digital era.
