नई दिल्ली. लगातार घाटे और कर्मचारियों को तन्ख्वाह बांटने के लाले पड़ने के बाद भी बीएसएनएल ने नौ लाख नए मोबाइल उपभोक्ता बनाए हैं। यह तब है जबकि रिलायंस JIO को छोड़कर बाकी सभी टेलीकॉम कंपनियां फेल हो गई हैं। निजी कंपनियां वोडाफोन आईडिया व एयरटेल आदि ने नए ग्राहक बनाने की बजाय 79 लाख उपभोक्ता खो दिए हैं।

BSNL added around 9 lakh new mobile customers, taking its total subscriber base to 11.62 crore in February

BSNL is the only operator other than Jio that has gained customers. Our performance shows that customers have faith in BSNL. We are able to compete and gain customers with our much-improved 3G network. In our endeavour to provide service, all our officers and employees are together," BSNL Chairman and Managing Director Anupam Shrivastava said. The state-run firm is competing in the market with 3G network, while all other operators are loaded with spectrum for 4G services.

Telecom tariffs to rise in 2nd half of this year : Edelweiss…………………

Prices of telecom services are likely to rise in the second half of the current financial year (2019-20), an Edelweiss report said on Tuesday. The probability of a price hike can be attributed to the fact that the penetration in mobile broadband services has increased significantly and is nearing a saturation point. "We estimate telecom operators to raise prices in H2FY20 as mobile broadband subscriber penetration reaches 65 per cent," said the report titled "Telecom-Daylight Again". "Typically, in a market characterised by low penetration of services, providers' quest for market share to gain economies of scale drives down prices, fuelling price wars. However, as investment requirements mount and relative attractiveness of balance market wanes, weaker players consolidate and participants start favouring pricing over incremental market share." On Reliance Jio, the Edelweiss report said that after 10 quarters since its launch and achieving 30 per cent of the revenue market share (RMS), "it is important to pause and take stock where the company stands now versus its objectives". "We believe that after achieving one of its key goals -- 400mn subscribers in H2FY20 -- RJIO will hike prices to improve return ratios," it said, adding that, JIO's management, during its launch, had stated that one of its target is to achieve 400 million subscribers. Regarding Bharti Airtel, the report observed that with a strong balance sheet and adequate network investments, it is well placed to capitalise on industry recovery. On the merged entity of Vodafone Idea, it said: "Although Vodafone Idea has higher operating and financial leverage from India's telecom industry revival, we maintain our cautious stance considering underwhelming capacity expansion plans and weak data volume traction. "We continue to believe that RJIO will become India's largest telecom operator led by the network's high data capacity driving mobile broadband subscriber market share."
