Chart Of The Day: Urban And Rural Telecom Connections Of Indian Telcos

As of March 2011, urban connections account for nearly 61.44 % of the total telecom connections in India. Some observations, but do keep in mind that some of many of these connections may actually be inactive: - Airtel has the maximum number of rural connections at 65.73 million (39.72% of total) - at 46.05 million, 51.45% of Idea Cellular's connections are rural, the maximum for any operator. It is the only telecom operator with more than half its base rural. - As much as 78.48% of Reliance Communications subscriber base is urban. Remember that this is a telecom operator begun with the pitch bringing rural customers into the telecom base. Data Source: TRAI Also, we weren't able to depict three telcos in this chart, owing to their tiny subscriber base in March 2011: - Sistema (MTS): 7.74 million urban connections, 2.36 million rural (23.37% of total is rural) - S-Tel: 2.02 million urban connections, 0.80 million rural (28.37% of tota is rurall). - HFCL (Quadrant) has 1.66 Million urban connections, 0.001 million rural Also see: Trends in growth of urban and rural mobile connections in India Share data sources with us: contact nikhil@medianama.com Advertise: To advertise on Chart of the Day, contact sales@medianama.com.
