Out of the 5000 additional towers announced earlier this year, 1,325 new base stations have already been deployed resulting in improved services and population coverage in the six circles.

The positive operational trend is backed by strong subscriber addition, improved usage and increased consumer market share. Compared to same quarter last year, Uninor improved its subscriber base by 33% and ARPU by 11% to reach Rs 108.

“In two of the three months of this quarter for which reports have been published, Uninor has added more subscribers in its six circles than any other mobile operator on any platform. This shows the success of our mass market strategy. Sabse Sasta voice and sabse sasta internet for all will be positions that Uninor will keep and defend through this year,” said Morten Karlsen Sorby, CEO of Uninor

Uninor launched its “Internet for All” strategy together with its Sabse Sasta Facebook and Sabse Sasta Whatsapp products earlier this year. At the end of Q2, Uninor’s Internet subscriber base has improved by 32% since the beginning of the year while the revenue from internet services grew by 42%. Continuing this strong performance in the second half of the year, Uninor will continue to be on track to achieve its target of doubling its active internet subscriber base and revenue from internet services in 2014.

uninor pls improve your data service. If you need then hike your data tariff like rs150 for 2GB or rs250 for 4GB. But pls improve ur service.

I have been the customer of uninor, since it’s launch in Andhrapradesh and very happy with the voice services. Even though the signals are weak in some areas I was satisfied with the voice clarity. If uninor improves the GPRS services sure it would be in NO.1 position in the andhrapradesh soon.
