The Indian customer base hit 1,205mn Feb, thanks to Jio, BSNL

Reliance Jio and Bharat Sanchar Nigam (BSNL) have combined 8.639 million mobile phone customers in February, according to a report published by the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai).

Other telecom phones, including Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea, have been lost in many parts of their customers. Total cumulative national customers, thanks to Jio and BSNL, have grown as high as 1,205 million. The unit, which is connected to the wireless network, raised the mobile phone market to 1,183.6 million at the end of February, from 1,181.9 million in January. Jio added 7.79 million, a total of 297 million customers. According to the company's telecom business, this has exceeded 300 million.

BSNL claimed 900,000 mobile customers, with a total consumer customer's share of 116.2 million at the end of February. "This shows that the customer believes BSNL is a competitor and we can compete with our customers to develop our 3G network upgrades (third generation technology)," said BSNL Chairman Anupam Shrivastava. The regional 3G company is competing for the 4G service for the private sector service. She asked the Center to provide 4G services, through an equity implant, in 2017. The government still does not go.
