The presentation by Kunal whose upshot is this slide had the maximum impact on what ails the Indian broadband penetration numbers, the idea that different companies can fix the different parts of this equation was clearer, before this I always thought a wireless ISP at my hometown would be a nice upgrade to its infrastructure :-

We are doing our part of the bargain which is to bringing Internet traffic (dependent on content and applications ) back to India so your last mile ISPs can stop complaining about the high cost of International Bandwidth, the cost of National long distance backhaul is a no-brainer there is million kilometers of practically un-used dark fiber capacity in the country today, the last mile is already available to the extent of 8Mbps (no wonder you have those IPTV and other anti-net neutrality products riding the last mile).
