The “Internet Trends” presentation by Mary Meeker of Venture Capital firm KPCB is probably the most comprehensive one I have come across till date. This 112 slide presentation gives a detailed look at global Internet Landscape. Have a look at it if you have time, but if not, you should bookmark it for later reading. It has some really good insights.

Some interesting numbers regarding India:
