5 issues to be tackled for making Internet BIG in India!

Internet in India is still in the net.While we all are hoping 3G to really change the world of internet around us but it might just fail to do. Statistics show that we are doing terribly as a nation - 
  1. Only 1% Indians use mobile to access Internet
  2. Compared to India's less than 10% penetration today, Malaysia has 56% and China has 28% penetration of Internet!
  3. Malaysians consume 35 percent more digital media than Internet users in China and 150 percent more than users in India
 In my mind these are the 5 issues that we, as a nation, need to tackle to ensure Internet finally gets BIG in India.
