Spending on Internet and Web site-related products and services will be the highest in 2010, compared with other ICT costs, among small and midsize businesses (SMBs) in India, according to a new report.

Released Wednesday by consulting firm Access Markets International (AMI) Partners, the study noted that Internet spending by India SMBs, which are defined as companies with up to 999 employees, will grow about 16 percent by end 2010, from US$1.45 billion in 2009.

Dev Chakravarty, assistant manager of research at AMI-Partners India, noted in the report that while India SMBs have reached saturation point in adopting basic Internet connectivity infrastructure, there is still a "considerable gap" when it comes to technologies such as broadband, Web sites, intranet and e-commerce.
