Their growth is outpacing the rest, as, together, they accounted for more active connections during the month (55%) than all the telecom operators combined, since some of the rest (Loop, BSNL and RCOM) lost connections.

7. Market concentration

Reliance Communications (RCOM), contributed very little to net additions, with only 0.36 million active connections added during the month. It still forms a significant part of the top four telecom operators, who together account for 76% of India’s active mobile connection base.
