April 2011: India Added over 11.10 Million GSM Connections

India Telecom Data
The Cellular Operators Association of India (which includes most of India’s GSM telecomoperators) has reported an increase of 11.10 million GSM connections in the country for the month of April 2011, up 1.95% for the month. Note that no information has been revealed about the active users and multi sim users.Telecom operator and circle-wise data (excluding Reliance and Tata):

-Etisalat added 237,026 new connections  in the month of April with a growth of 24.48% albeit on a small base.

-MTNL’s poor run continues with adding only 14,633 connections with a net change of 0.28%.Its total connection base now stands at 5,213,970 connections.

-Airtel,Vodafone and Idea Cellular added nearly 2.4 million GSM connections.

– Uninor continues to be the strongest among the new telcos, adding 1.45 million connections for the month.

-Madhya Pradesh has added the maximum connections with a net change of  4.06% taking its connection base to 30.28 Million.

-Himachal Pradesh and Kolkata encountered a decline in its connection base from last month.

-Delhi added 713,546 connections in April.

Although the report states that 11.10 million GSM connections were added last month,this figure is minuscule in comparison with the  last month figures where nearly 14.49 million new connections were added.With TRAI getting more teeth can we expect some encouraging figures for the ongoing month?
