Telenor mentions that the active connection base in India’s operations are more conservative than the rest of the group due to the high churn in the market. Subscriptions in India are considered active if there was activity in the last 30 days, where as for the rest of the group active mobile internet users are subscriptions with at least 150 KB of data during the last three months.

Highlights

– ARPU: The total ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) was at Rs 95 for the quarter, down from Rs 98 in the preceding quarter and down from Rs 108 in the same quarter last year. The company attributed the decline in ARPU to lower voice consumption, and the impact from reduced mobile termination rate, but was  partly compensated by increased data usage.

–  Net Additions: Telenor witnessed 1.3 million net additions for the quarter, as compared to 1.8 million net additions in the preceding quarter.

– Total connection base: Telenor reported a total connection base of 39.849 million across six telecom circles Andhra Pradesh, Bihar, Gujarat, Maharashtra, UP East and UP West for the quarter. In comparison, Telenor had a connection base of 38.50 million in the previous quarter. Note that Telenor had secured 6MHz spectrum in Assam in February 2014 2G auctions but is yet to start its operations in that region. In October last year, Telenor had mentioned that it plans to launch services in Assam in early 2015.
