Airtel 300 Million customersBharti Airtel has crossed 300 million customers mark across its operations. The milestone includes customers across mobile, fixed line & DSL, and DTH services. Bharti Airtel, which began operations in 1995, reached the 100 million customers mark in 2009 and crossed the 200 million mark in 2012. The latest 100 million customers have joined the Airtel family in less than two years. The Company ranks as the fourth* largest mobile service provider globally and second largest globally outside of China.

Mr. Gopal Vittal, Managing Director and CEO (India and South Asia) Bharti Airtel said, “This milestone underlines the strength of our operations, which is one of the largest on a global scale. It is also a tribute to the ‘Airtel’ brand which is trusted by customers in 20 countries, making it the largest global consumer brand out of India. Today, telecom is at the cusp of transformation, which, going forward will be driven as much by the force of technology as by the changing demographics in emerging markets across Asia and Africa. Accelerated data consumption by the youth is going to be the underlying story. I am confident that Airtel will continue to be at the forefront of this future growth story and continue to delight customers by adding value to their lives.”

Bharti Airtel has been one of the pioneers in India’s telecom revolution over the past two decades. Its unique low-cost business model transformed the sector and helped in the proliferation of affordable mobile services. The Company is the largest telecommunications company in India by customers and revenue. It put India on the data superhighway when it launched the country’s first 4G services in 2012.
