Reliance Jio Now Has 23 Percent Market Share in Indian Telecom Sector: Truecaller Report

Reliance Jio recently regarded as the fastest growing company beating the Facebook, WhatsApp, and others. And now, we have an interesting data from the recognized caller ID detecting service, Truecaller as their 'TrueInsights Q4 Report’ claims that Jio is India’ second largest telecom network in India with over 23 percent market share.


The report further claims that all the networks combinedly added 1.12 billion consumers by the end of November 2016 with the majority of users added by Jio standing at whopping 16.2 million. Also, Jio has added a total of 51.87 million subscribers within just three after its inception.

“Investigating the last six months of usage we can see that Jio has grown aggressively at the end of the summer. Jio racked up millions of customers in their first months and even picked up the pace of acquisition towards the end of the year,” the TrueInsights Q4 report claimed.

As expected, the reason for this quick rise of Jio is the free 4G services, under which Jio used to give away 4GB of data per day and still offering 1GB of data per day under the ‘New Year Offer.'

Besides this, the report also revealed that Jio users are the ones who make calls of less than 30 seconds and the list is lead by Vodafone users with 41 seconds. Delhi is the largest user base for Jio. Bharti Airtel and Jio almost has an equal share in every region, but Vodafone showed its aggressive nature in Delhi and Mumbai, whereas Idea showed its dominance in Maharashtra.

The report further added “From our data, it’s clear that Jio has already shaken up the mobile landscape in India. Mobile internet usage is expected to grow to over 500 million customers by the end of 2017 with a significant portion of those picking Jio. As a result, there’s already consolidation discussions among operators in India due to the increased competitive pressures,”.

With its free 4G services, Jio will surely rule the mobile data space in India in coming days and to give a glimpse of that; an average Jio user is consuming 6.54GB of data and is way ahead of the competition with Airtel’s users logging at just 1.28GB.
