Bharti Airtel's ARPU (average revenue per user) figure is also the highest amongst the private telcos. Airtel's ARPU for Q1 FY24 was Rs 200, which is also its short-term ARPU goal. In the long run, the telco aims to reach an ARPU of Rs 300, which JM Financials expects will be possible around 2028. Apart from Jio, Bharti Airtel is the only profitable telecom operator in India. In the next five years, analysts expect that the telco will be able to achieve positive net cash fueled by higher ARPU and a growing enterprise business.
