Reliance Communications has reported a consolidated net profit of Rs. 14102 million, down 7.88% since the last quarter. This is despite a 3.64% increase in consolidated for the quarter.

The contribution of Non-SMS VAS declined in percentage terms, but increased in absolute terms to Rs. 939.2 million/month from Rs. 926.255 million/month. The number of wireless subscribers added by Reliance also declined - down to 5.299 million, as compared to 5.7 million subscribers added in the previous quarter. What's not encouraging is the decline in new broadband access lines for the third straight quarter. RCOM, however, hasn't shared data on their WiMax services.
