A significant amount of $200.1 million has been invested in the telecom industry from July 2018 to March 2019. The cellular mobile sector has been the main drive behind this investment. A recent economic survey has revealed that the mobile sector has invested $158.3 million during the first two quarters of the fiscal year 2018-2019.
