Wireless Wireless subscriber base continued its growth in September, 14.99 milion new subscribers were added taking the total to 471.73 million. As discussed in earlier editions of the report we still do not have figures for churn as well as overlapping of subscribers due to multiple SIMs. Airtel still leads the pack with a market share of 23.43%, followed by Reliance Communications (RCOM) with 18.26%. RCOM offers both CDMA and GSM services and the split between them is not given. Vodafone Essar follows closely with 17.56% market share. Similar to last month, Tata Teleservices, which incorporates Tata Docomo (GSM) and Tata Indiacom (CDMA) stands out with the addition of 4 million connections this month, breaking last month's record. It still has a long way to go, however, and stands at #6. HFCL continues to lose customers. Landline Wireline subscriber base in the country declined from 37.33 million in August 2009 to 37.31 million at the end of September 2009. This decline is mainly on account of reduction in the landline connections of BSNL/MTNL - the combine lost 0.06 million subscribers in the month. These two PSU operators hold 85.67% of the landline market share. Overall teledensity is 3.19%. Related: -Sep09: India Adds 9.03M GSM Connections…
