Indian Wireless Mobile Subscriber Growth Facing Stagnation


The growth story of Indian wireless subscriber base is experiencing near to zero percent growth. Post achieving 900million plus subscriber base during low tariff regime, the subscriber addition growth muted down. For the last one year, more than 60 million subscribers surrendered their wireless mobility connection for one or another reason. The slews of regulatory enforcement such as MNP, Roaming, and MVAS also helped subscribers are maintain single connection compared to multiple connection. As per TRAI released report for the month of July 2013, the wireless subscriber base increased from 873.36 Mn to 874.88 Mn MoM and achieved less than quarter of percentage point growth. On analyzing last 12 month subscriber growth, it is evident that few months of growth and de-growth is neutralizing the net subscriber growth. Moving forward, it is expected that Indian wireless subscriber base would settle around 850 million post connection cleanup process of BSNL and other wireless service providers as they are still reporting high non VLR active subscriber base.
