Bharti – Zain deal is sealed, the 10.3 billion dollar deal  leapfrogs the largest Telecom provider in India, Bharti, to the top 5 in the world. Before this deal they were placed at 10th amongst the top telecom companies in the world.

Top 15 Telecom Companies in World

10 Bharti Airtel 125 Mln
11 MTN Group 116 Mln
12 Mobile Telesystems 102 Mln
13 Reliance Communications 100 Mln
14 Orascom Telecom 93 Mln
15 AT&T 85 Mln

These figures are based as of end- February 2010.

If you add Zain’s 42 Million subscribers in 15 African countries now coming under Bharti’s Umbrella – The Total Subscriber base of Bharti Airtel goes to 167 million Subscribers, which puts it firmly in 5th position

We also have Reliance Communication which just celebrated the 100 millionth connection and is placed at 13th position !

Also, with the kind of growth Indian Telecom Industry is witnessing, I see Bharti coming in top 3 position probably by end of this year.

Some bragging rights there…uhhh !
