TT Correspondent |  |  23 Mar 2019

Sunil Mittal-led Bharti Airtel has added more broadband users in January than Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Jio Infocomm, data released by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) for January showed. This has happened for the first time for Airtel since the entry of Jio, which disrupted the market with cheap tariffs.

Airtel added 1 crore mobile broadband users compared with Jio’s 93.2 lakh subscribers in January, Trai data revealed.

The number of broadband subscribers of Jio stood at 289.44 million against 280.12 million, a net addition of 9.3 million.

Jio, however, added the most number of active subscribers overall. It added 63.2 lakh active users in January–the lowest in the last seven months. Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea lost nearly 45.6 lakh and 62.1 lakh active users, respectively.
