India Now Wants Access To Google and Skype 366

crabel writes "A couple of weeks ago India went after RIM and its mail service; it has extended its hunger for data now to all telecommunications. All telecom companies have to give them access to all voice over IP services that go in/out or happen within the country. Heck, they are even going after VPNs used by corporate employees working remotely."

    You wanted to be the greatest source of ICT Professionals in the world.

    You started low - call centres - but hoped high.

    Now you just shot yourself in the foot with a rocket launcher.

    As long as they got a good bounce they'll reach the Quad Damage and be rocking despite the minor health loss up front.

    Businesses bend over to comply with China because of it's massive population that they can exploit. Either to harness them as cheap manufacturing or to get their Internet dollars. India can't compete on either count.

    Bwa-huhn? China's population is greater than India's, true, but only by 150 million people or so. According to Wikipedia, China has 1.34 billion people vs. India's 1.19 billion. Granted 150 million people is a pretty big number (it's slightly under half the total population of the US), but as a percentage China's population isn't that much bigger than India's. Certainly they're close enough that the effort expended to separate people from their Rupees should be roughly equal to the effort expended to separate people form their Yen.
