Chart Of The Day: ARPU vs Minutes Of Use For India’s CDMA & GSM Mobile Base

Over the period of four years, the Average Revenue Per User for India’s CDMA mobile users has gone down by 67.32% whereas for GSM mobile users, the decline has been 66.44%. On the other hand minutes of usage per user (or connection) for GSM decreased by  25.90% while CDMA users reported a decline of  44.16%.

Important: While looking at these figures, one also needs to take into account that around 30% of India’s over-800-million mobile connections are inactive. Head honchos at telecom operators have themselves been saying that the ARPU as a metric has become irrelevant because of multi-SIM usage and inactive connections. The split between GSM and CDMA operators, in terms of active-inactive users, is not known.

It would be interesting to see how ARPU and MoU gets impacted during the quarter that will end on 30th September 2011, given that many telcos have increased their tariffs.
