hypnosec (2231454) writes "Eric Schmidt has warned that India may very well miss the Internet revolution completely for the want of proper infrastructure and advancement in technology. Schmidt said he is worried that India is making the same mistake as other companies have made by resting on their “laurels without understanding how quickly technology changes.” By saying this Schmidt was indicating that India lacks in fiber optic connectivity, the connectivity which has been acknowledged as high speed Internet’s future. When asked by Managing Editor of CNBC TV 18, Senthil Chengalvarayan, why was the Internet Revolution side stepping India, he answered that India’s net connectivity has always been weak. There is lack of undersea cables to handle bandwidth, lack of fiber optic cables as well as proper infrastructure in the country."
