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..
