India’s telecom market has been increasing by leaps and bounds adding around 8 million customers every month. And because of this growth, TRAI started keeping a tab on the level of congestion at the Point of Interconnection (POI) between the service providers.
The result may not be surprising because the two largest operators in India face the congestion problem. Bharti Airtel from the GSM front leads the pack followed by CDMA giant, RCom. The most congested circles are Bihar, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Haryana, North East and Himachal Pradesh.
Note: POI signifies the ease with which a customer of one network is able to communicate with a customer of another network. This parameter also reflects as to how effective is the interconnection between two networks.
