The history of internet service in India was first launched by VSNL in August 1995.In the early months of its launch it could only attract 10,000 customers as people did not know a lot about its usage and its benefits in life and the speed was also very slow.
As years went the attraction of the people towards internet increased as people started to know about its usage. The total subscriber base of internet users in India is up to 22.39 million which is growing with an estimation of up to 121 million in the next few years.
In India there are about 155 Internet Service Providers out of which the maximum share is of Public Sector companies MTNL and BSNL while from the Public sector companies Bharti Airtel leads.
Earlier modems as well as half used telephone lines we normally state it as Dial Up connection were used which usually provided a very slow speed as individuals had to wait a long time for a page to load as the speed was only about 256 Kbit/s.
But now there is a change in the attraction of people towards internet usage as it is increased as people have understood its importance and today whether it may be a child using internet for making projects to small as well as giant MNC’S are using internet on a large scale for making their work easy.
