Same story for November 2022, Jio and Airtel win, others lose

The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) released its monthly telecom performance indicator report for November 2022 on Friday. While the numbers went up and down, the story was much the same as what’s happened in recent months and years. Again, in November 2022, Airtel and Jio gained users while BSNL (Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited) and Vodafone Idea (Vi) lost subscribers. This has been the trend in the industry for a long time. Let’s dive into the numbers.

Airtel and Jio achieved almost similar numbers of users

Bharti Airtel and Reliance Jio gained almost similar number of users in November 2022. Jio added 1.42 million subscribers, while Airtel added 1.05 million users. Note that we are talking about the wireless subscribers here. BSNL and Vodafone Idea lost 1.17 million and 1.82 million users respectively. But the stats that really matter are how many active users the telcos have added. From the looks of it, Jio lost about 2 million MoM active users (month over month), and Airtel added charges to one million active users. Vodafone Idea again lost almost 2 million active users and BSNL lost about 0.5 million active users.
