  • airtel and Trust Jio bounced back to add active subscribers in May as VI continued to lose, according to telecom subscriber data from TRAI.
  • Airtel added 1 million new subscribers and jio 3 million subscribers added while Vodafone idea lost 0.8 million subscribers in May.
  • Airtel was a silent winner in 2022 with over 6 million subscribers while Jio and Vodafone Idea lost nearly 7 million each.

The Indian telecom landscape is heating up again with the 5G spectrum auctions just a week away. But there is a silent battle for subscribers going on in the background and Airtel seems to be leading the way for the year.

According to the Telecom Regulatory Body of India (TRAI) subscriber data, Airtel added just over 6.4 million subscribers in 2022 (until May), while its rivals Reliance Jio and Vodafone Idea both lost nearly 7 million.

The above chart shows that Airtel’s subscriber count has experienced slow but steady growth while Reliance Jio’s subscriber count has been very volatile. Vodafone Idea, on the other hand, loses more than a million subscribers every month on average.

In May, Airtel and Jio combined added more than 4 million subscribers, while Vodafone Idea lost 0.8 million.

Industry regains momentum, but Vodafone Idea’s losses continue

Good news for the entire industry: The total number of active subscribers increased by 4 million in May – with Airtel and Jio contributing more than 6.6 million, while Vodafone Idea lost 2.3 million active subscribers.

This would be worrying for Vodafone Idea, which has seen its active subscriber market share decline steadily every month since early 2020 – between January 2020 and May 2022, Vodafone Idea’s active subscriber market share fell from 30.1% to 21.6%.

During the same period, Airtel has increased from 31.7% to 34.9% and Jio has increased its share from 31.4% to 37.7%.

After energy, media and consumer goods, it’s Adani vs Ambani in telecom

The Indian telecom landscape is heating up again with the 5G spectrum auctions just a week away. But there is a silent battle for subscribers going on in the background and Airtel seems to be leading the way for the year. Airtel was a silent winner in 2022 with over 6 million subscribers while Jio and Vodafone Idea lost nearly 7 million each.


Why are active subscribers so important to telecom companies?

As the name suggests, active subscribers have a subscription to their number. This means that they are actively paying money to telcos, rather than having a dormant number just to receive calls. In April, the total active subscriber base decreased by 7.5 million.

Indian telecom companies have actively tried to ban inactive subscribers by informing them via phone calls and messages to subscribe to a plan or their numbers would be disconnected.

$BHARTIARTL.NSE A long term bullish breakout is in play in bharti airtel. The stock has emerged from a long-term consolidation of recent years and now appears to be holding lower levels to advance in the occupied territory. Usually stock breakouts like this one are good for the short term, but best to hold onto for long term play.

Jio has often been used as a secondary SIM card by many users, as evidenced by the fact that its active subscriber market share increased from 84% in November 2021 to 93.8% in May 2022, when it lost nearly 20 million subscribers.
