    Some folks include tablet as mobile, some don’t – we should fix that (or at least try to always be very clear).

    According to the Global report 55,7% for India’s mobile traffic, instead of 61% as you have stated above. Anyway, I find it hard to believe.

    The 61% Greg mentions is the August 2013 benchmark, whereas the country chart above from The Webcertain Global Mobile Report is based on May 2013 data; hence, the discrepancy.

    It’s indeed hard to believe that mobile phones now drive more than three fifths of total web traffic in India. After all, smartphone penetration still sits below 10% of total mobile phone subscriptions. That said, you have to keep in mind that fixed broadband is extremely scarce in India, making mobile — predominantly simpler feature phones — the primary gateway to the internet in the country.

    Thank you for the clarification, Immanuel.
