The overall mobile user base in India marginally grew to 1,035.12 million (103.5 crore) in June with BSNL regaining a spot in top 5 players.

The mobile user base in India marginally grew to 1,035.12 million (103.5 crore) at the end of June 2016, with state-run telecom firm BSNL regaining its spot among the top five players. The total telecom customer base (wireless and wireline) at the end of June stood at 1,059.86 million, marginally up from 1,058.03 million at the end of May 2016, thus showing a monthly growth rate of 0.17 percent, TRAI said today.

With these numbers, the overall tele-density in India rose to 83.20 from 83.14 at the end of May, TRAI said in its monthly report for June, 2016. The telecom regulator also said the wireless or mobile subscriber base increased by 0.19 percent from 1,033.16 million at the end of May to 1,035.12 million in June. Wireline subscriber base, on the other hand, marginally declined to 24.74 million in June compared to 24.87 million in the previous month.

Bharti Airtel led the growth tally with a net addition of 1.4 million new mobile customers, taking its total subscriber base to 255.73 million. State-run BSNL had the second highest addition of 1.3 million customers, taking its total mobile user base to 89.54 million.

With this, BSNL pipped Aircel to become the fifth largest mobile services company in the country, a position it lost in April 2015. Aircel added 0.67 million new wireless subscribers, taking its total mobile customer base to 88.93 million. While Vodafone added 0.7 million customers to take its mobile user base to 199.38 million, Idea’s user base rose to 176.23 million with addition of 0.68 million new users.

The number of broadband subscribers increased to 159.80 million at the end of June from 159.76 million in May. Of these, 142.06 million were mobile devices users (phones and dongles), while 17.16 million were wired subscribers and 0.54 million used fixed wireless (WiFi, WiMax, Point-to-Point Radio and VSAT), TRAI said.
