Vodafone India added 2.8 million 3G Internet connections for the quarter ended March 31, 2014, taking its total 3G Internet connections user base to 19.4 million for the quarter, as compared to 16.6 million 3G connections in the previous quarter and 7 million 3G connections in the same quarter last year.

Incidental mobile internet users? What’s also worth noting is that Vodafone’s total mobile Internet connection base seems to include incidental mobile Internet users (users who have consumed less than 1 MB/month), while its competitors Idea Cellular, Airtel and Reliance Communications have all started culling incidental mobile Internet users from the past few quarters. Maybe it’s time Vodafone India also started doing it.
