Jio’s second quarter (FY22) was not very good in increasing the number of subscribers. It has suffered a significant loss in the form of mobile subscribers in September.

According to the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), Bharti Airtel gained 2.74 lakh new mobile subscribers, in September whereas Jio lost 19 million subscribers in September. However, the country’s third-largest telecom company, Vodafone Idea, loses 10.77 lakh connections. As per data, Airtel subscribers increased to 35.44 million in September, from 35.41 crores in August.

The number of mobile subscribers of Jio remains at 42.48 million and lost 1.9 crore connections in September. During this period, the number of Vodafone Idea customers came down to 26.99 crores. Airtel’s wireless subscribers market share has registered an increase of 0.08 percent. In contrast, the market share of Jio has decreased by 4.29 percent.

The telecom regulator noted that the private access service provider had an 89.99 percent market share of wireless subscribers, while state-run MTNL and BSNL held 10.01 percent. According to the data, the total wireless subscribers fell by 1.74 percent to 116.60 million at the end of September compared to the previous month. In the same period, wireless subscriptions in urban areas fell by 1.92 percent to about 638 million.
