Bharti Airtel reported 38 lakh subscriber additions in Sep-20, much larger that what Jio managed to add during the same period. While Jio managed to add 15 lakh subscribers, Vodafone actually lost 46 lakh subscribers in the month on the back of poor service and subscriber concerns.

Currently, the wireless subscriber base of Jio stands at 40.41 crore while the base of Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea stand at 32.66 crore and 29.55 crore respectively. Bharti had lost nearly 1.25 crore subscribers during the pandemic but has now recovered over 80% of the loss.

Now Bharti is reporting subscriber additions and higher ARPUs. Now there is clarity required on two key areas viz. timing of the tariff hike and timelines for 5G capex. Not surprisingly, the stock was up 4% on Friday.
