Comments on the Wireless Business

Reliance Jio is very close to taking its total subscriber base to 500 million. At the same rate of growth, it should take Jio another 12-14 months to reach that milestone. Bharti Airtel, while lost active users one odd month, continue to keep its growth pace at an impressive scale and also has the highest ARPU (average revenue per user) in the industry. For Airtel, the next major milestone would be to reach 400 million users, which should happen in the near future too.

Vodafone Idea (Vi) and BSNL continue to lose users and for Vi to actually raise more money in the future, the telco has to ensure that it can put a full stop to subscriber loss and increase its ARPU. BSNL's active user base has dipped below 50 million, while Vi's active user base is now reaching 190 million.
