According to the latest data published by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai), Reliance Jio has further strengthened its leadership in the Kolkata metro area by adding over 15,000 subscribers in March 2023. First reported by TNN, this achievement has pushed Jio's current subscriber base in the city past the significant milestone of one crore (10 million) customers. In contrast, Airtel managed to gain 8,654 subscribers during the same period, while Vodafone Idea (Vi) experienced a loss of 34,693 subscribers, as reported by Trai.




The data indicates a significant trend in the Kolkata metro circle, with a recent Macquarie Research report from May 2023 highlighting Jio's success in capitalising on the declining market share of Vodafone Idea since 2018. Jio has captured the majority of Vi's lost market share, further solidifying its position in the region. On the other hand, Airtel hasn't seen substantial gains from this market shift, as per the report.
