According to a monthly subscriber report provided by the TRAI, Reliance Jio is currently the leading operator in the fixed-broadband market (TRAI). The telecom operator began its JioFiber service at the end of 2019 and has already surpassed BSNL. It has dominated the category for over two decades, in less than two years.
Reliance Jio upset the industry by selling high-speed internet plans for 35-45 percent less than competitors, along with certain complementary services. When the telecom operator first entered the market, it used a technique similar to this to acquire mobile users.
In addition, the firm saw growth in the mobile market, with a net increase of 20,19,362 clients. It presently has 428 million subscribers worldwide. While Bharti Airtel added 13,18,251 new mobile subscribers in November 2021, Vodafone Idea (VIL) lost 18,97,050 consumers. BSNL, the state-owned telecom operator, was also unable to recruit clients and lost 2,40,062 mobile users.
Reliance Jio presently dominates fixed-line broadband connections in the nation, having added 0.19 million customers in November, bringing its total fixed broadband user base to 4.3 million. Bharti Airtel added 0.1 million fixed-line broadband users in November, bringing its total customer base to 4.08 million. BSNL’s client base has shrunk significantly, with 4.2 million in November 2021, down from 4.72 million in October.
“At the end of November, the top five service providers accounted for 98.68% of all broadband users,” according to TRAI.
With 432.96 million customers, Reliance Jio leads the fixed-line broadband market. With 210.10 million broadband customers, Bharti Airtel is in second place. VIL now has 122.40 million customers, BSNL has 23.62 million, and Atria Convergence has 1.98 million.
