Shocking! BSNL Beats Jio In Adding New Users; Jio Loses 99% Growth As Tariff Increase Backfires
For the first time ever in the history of telecom, state-run telecom carrier BSNL, which was about to shut down few months ago, has beaten Jio in terms of growth.
Infact, Jio has lost 99% growth, as the decision to increase tariff has terribly backfired for all.
Except for BSNL.
BSNL Beats Jio In Adding New Users
For the month ending in December, 2019, BSNL added total of 4.2 lakh new users, whereas Jio was able to add only 82,308 new users.
This way, for the first time ever, BSNL has beaten Jio and all other telecom operators in India in terms of growth.
In the month of November, BSNL had added 3.3 lakh new users, and with this amazing performance in December, BSNL’s market share has increased to 10.26%, from 10.19%.
For BSNL, which is trying to cement their position in the telecom market, this is a piece of encouraging news.
Jio’s Growth Falls By 99%
If we talk about Jio, then for the first time in their history, they were not able to add atleast 5 milion new users in a month.
For December, they were able to add only 82,308 new users, which is 99% less than 5,608,668 new users which they added in November.
Starting December, Jio, Airtel and Vodafone, all had increased their tariff by upto 45% in some cases, and clearly this move has backfired.
Not only Jio, but Vodafone and Airtel also lost existing users, and failed to add new users. Airtel lost just 11,000 users, whereas Vodafone lost 36 lakh users in the same period.
Jio Is Still #1, Airtel At #3
After the twist in the market dynamics due to increased tariff, Jio is still at #1 position, whereas Vodafone is at #2 and Airtel at #3 position.
