  • India’s largest telecom provider, Reliance Jio, released its quarterly results for June 2022 on Friday.
  • In the past three months, Jio’s average revenue per user increased 5% sequentially to ₹175.7, continuing the momentum the telco gained in the March quarter.
  • Jio also added nearly 10 million new subscribers during this period.

Reliance Jio, India’s largest telecom company, which announced its financial results for the June 2022 quarter on Friday, showed continued momentum in how much it earns on average from each subscriber, otherwise known as ARPU (average revenue per user).

Reliance Jio posted 5% sequential growth in net profit between April and June 2022, following a strong 14% growth in the previous quarter.

Particularities Q1 FY23 Q4 FY22 Q1 FY22
Revenue ₹27,527 crore ₹26,139 crores ₹22,267 crore
Net profit ₹4,530 crore ₹4,313 crore ₹3.651 crore
Margin 16.5% 16.5% 16.4%
ARPU ₹175.7 ₹167.6 ₹138.4

Reliance Jio also recorded a 5% sequential increase in its ARPU – a critical metric for measuring a telecom company’s performance.

Multiple contributing factors were a 21% rate hike and the offloading of millions of low-value and dormant subscribers that had been undermining the company’s ARPU numbers for several quarters.

The ARPU’s continued growth is in line with analyst expectations at JP Morgan.
