India’s largest telecom operator Reliance Jio leadsin the user addition

India's largest telecom operator Reliance Jio continued to lead with a subscriber base of 402.7 million users in August, according to data released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI).  Reliance Jio became the first-ever mobile phone operator to cross 400 million subscribers in India in July and added 1.86 million users in August.

Jio added a net 1.86 million users and ended August with 402.7 million users, of which 78.86% were active users, according to TRAI. Bharti Airtel added 2.90 million wireless subscribers to end the month with 322.8 million users, or 28.12% share, of which 96.85% were active. Vodafone Idea (Vi), however, continued to lose users, giving up 1.23 million subscribers to end August with 300.1 million, or 26.15% share, of which 88.18% were active.

Reliance Jio, which has announced cheaper tariff plans to attract more customers to its broadband service JioFibre, added the highest number of wireline users, 160,794, in August with an 8.92% market share. Jio has rolled out cheaper broadband plans amid the Centre's push to improve wireline connectivity. Covid-led remote working has significantly increased data consumption and dependency on the network, leading to slower internet speeds.
