Millions of mobile-phone subscribers in Africa saw the icon on their phone screens change from the Bahrain company Zain to the Indian company Airtel last fall. The change means little to the average customer, but for the continent, it's another sign that India is moving in.
"This is the last growth continent in the world. Europe is a done industry. The U.S. is a done industry. Southeast Asia is old," said Sunil Mittal, founder and chairman of Bharti Airtel.
Mr. Mittal, the founder, said he wants to more than double the company's Africa business in the next 2 1/2 years, to 100 million subscribers.
