vodafone

Vodafone India has 23.8 million 3G Internet connections for the quarter ended September 30, 2015. In comparison, the telecom operator had 13.6 million connections in the same period last year, and 22.1 million subscribers in the preceding quarter. Vodafone’s total data connections stood at 66.5 million, down marginally down 0.45% quarter-on-quarter (q-o-q) from 66.8 million in the previous quarter. However, on a year-on-year basis, data connections increased 16% from 57.2 million.

Note, 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 started culling incidental mobile Internet users from the past few quarters. Maybe it’s time Vodafone India also started doing it.
