Is India going to have more Ld/ILD players?

Posted by tggokul on March 26, 2007

Atleast that is what we can assume from the speech of Dayanidhi Maran, the current  IT and Communications Minister. While inaugurating the BT’s 21 CN service in Chennai he said

We need to have more National Long Distance and International Long Distance players. USA has more than 600 NLD and 350 ILD operators, Australia has 20, even Korea has double-digit operators. In India, we can count the number of ILD operators in a single hand.

This has been on the cards for sometime. VSNL has had a monopolistic control on this and this is slowly wading with the entry of few other entities. But if we take the Minister’s statement literally, we can expect to see lot more of these LD/ILD players.
