You must be joking. What country are you talking about? Must be US where almost everything costs anywhere from 20 to 30 times the price in India. India was the pioneer of designing and deploying 256 line ( and higher) solar powered telephone exchanges linking remotest very small villages. We also have very high deployment of WLL telephony service which does not require any cabling whatsoever. Majority of TV subscribers are linked through satellites with more than 400 channels available for a meager US$ 10/= to 12/= per month ! All these from privately owned corporations WITHOUT any government subsidies and after paying huge amounts for licensing.
