Total Population -> 1,166,079,217 (2009 est) [1]

Economic Indicators
GDP (PPP) -> $3.3 Trillion (4th in the world) [7]
GDP (PPP) per Capita -> $2,780 (130th in the World) [8] * the distribution of wealth is so skewed in India that this number looks really bad. If someone has data on what the middle class (~300 million folks) makes, it would be am interesting number I bet.

Broadband Penetration (5.3 million) is one of the interesting numbers. We would hope to see that number go way up in the next 5- 10 years.

China, I believe has around 60 million broadband users right now.

India could reach that number in 10 yrs, I would imagine.

This should be an interesting ride..
