BSNL's Overall Subscriber Count and Losses

However, as already envisaged by TelecomTalk, BSNL lost around 1.8 million subscribers in the month of June, bringing its total subscribers to 99,476,822 (around 99.5 Million), which is below the 100 million subscriber mark. In 2010, BSNL announced crossing the 100 million subscriber mark, and now, in June 2023, BSNL has lost its former shine and fallen below that threshold. BSNL's rural wireless subscriber base also now stands at 31,344,019. BSNL lost the three-digit million mark tag much earlier than we predicted.

While BSNL gained wireless subscribers in 11 circles, the massive losses in the remaining circles caused the state-owned telco to lose -1,886,389 subscribers, and MTNL lost -152,912 wireless subscribers.

Currently, BSNL's 4G network is being launched in phases across India, and it remains to be seen how many subscribers will remain with BSNL by the time the complete 4G rollout is finished.

For those unaware, BSNL soft-launched 4G services a few years ago, and currently, BSNL 4G is available on a limited scale in few locations across various circles as reported by TelecomTalk. It will be interesting to observe how BSNL's subscriber base evolves as the full 4G rollout is completed.
