Last Thursday weannounced that we are going local in India by establishing an office in New Delhi and welcoming Sanjay Sinha on board as the General Manager for Fortumo India. Since the launch of our direct carrier billing solution in September, we have seen strong interest from developers for using Fortumo to collect payments from 600 million phone owners in India.
This week we will be attending two events in India which are focusing on solving challenges of the transforming digital landscape - Nokia Music Connects in Mumbai and the Mobile Internet Conference in New Delhi. While smartphone adoption in India is growing by 50% per year and people are consuming more digital content than ever, developers are finding it difficult to make revenue in a country with less than 20 million credit card owners. Meanwhile, operator billing with Fortumo already works for 70% of mobile phone owners in the country.
