In terms of growth, Uninor emerged as the fastest growing operator as it grew by 3.57 percent over the previous month on the back of network expansion. Uninor was also second to Airtel in terms of addition of subscribers. Airtel added 1.66 million subscribers, Uninor  1.31 million and at number 3 was Idea with addition of 1.16 million subscribers.

 

The UP(West) emerged as the circle with the maximum number of subscribers. It had 65.95 million subscribers as of 31 May 2014 with Uninor being the number 1 operator with 19.5 million subscribers. The rural sector is the one where the growth lies and operators are aware of that. Companies like Uninor have a footprint in those areas where the likes of Airtel and Vodafone do not and that is what helps them stay in business despite the giants being around all the time.

Let us see what the future has in store for the GSM subscribers of the country.
