Vodafone’s 3G connections increased 56% to 26M in Q3 FY16

Vodafone India has 25.9 million 3G Internet connections for the quarter ended December 31, 2015. In comparison, the telecom operator had 16.6 million connections (increase of 56.02%)  in the same period last year, and 23.8 million subscribers in the preceding quarter. The company, however, did not reveal the total number of data connections this quarter. In the preceding quarter, Vodafone's data connections were down marginally at 66.5 million. Vodafone said that data usage increased 64% year-on-year. "However, the rate of revenue growth slowed in the quarter driven by increased price competition,” the company added. 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. Other data highlights -  Total data revenue increased 38% y-o-y. - 3G data revenue increased by 69%. - 3G data usage per user increased 23%. - Total data usage reached 85,231 terabytes from 51,889 TB from the same period last year. – Blended prepaid mobile ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) for the quarter is Rs 141, down from Rs 144 in the previous quarter. – Average data usage per user for the quarter is 438 MB, up from 393MB in the previous quarter. – Vodafone M-Pesa active user base surged 45% q-o-q to 962,000. While the number of M-Pesa agents stood at 102,000.
