Cellular penetration in India has grown tremendously in recent years and provides an opportunity to bridge the digital divide. However, there is little understanding of the state of cellular data connectivity in India. In this talk, I present the first impressions of cellular data network performance in India. I present a measurement framework designed specifically for remote deployments and intermittent connectivity. I then present an evaluation of three GSM based and one CDMA based cellular service providers done through active measurements conducted at rural, semi-urban, and urban locations. Through analysis of about 450 hours of measurement data collected over a 3-month period, I present availability, throughput, and latency performance of cellular service providers and provide insights into the architecture of the service provider networks.
