In December, there was a net addition of 19.10 million wireless connections taking the total number of wireless connections to 525.15 million by the end of the year. It should be kept in mind that these figures do not factor in churn and overlapping due to multiple SIMs, so the figures are connections and necessarily not customers.
Total broadband connections have increased from 7.57 million in November to 7.83 million in December, showing a growth of 3.56 percent .
Wireline connections declined from 37.16 million in November to 37.06 million at the end of December. BSNL and MTNL hold 85.22% of the wireline market share but they lost 0.12 million subscribers in the month. Overall wireline teledensity is at just 3.16%.
