It’s another milestone for the Indian telecom sector. With people having more to spend and the prices of cellphones and services getting lower by the day, the average Indian seems to be trying his hand at the mobile phone. The addition seems to be increasing every month.
With 6.32 million users being added in June, which people thought as a whopping figure, the new record has been set in July. With 6.42million (64 lakh) people signing in for GSM connections, July seems to have made the Indian market even more tempting for operators planning to enter the Indian market. Here is a picture of the current market:
- Total user base (GSM): 218.9 million
- Total addition: 6.42 million
- Bharti Airtel added: 2.69 million
- Vodafone added: 1.76 million
- BSNL added: 0.55 million
- Idea added: 1.05 million
