Goldman Sachs said that, “despite Jio’s marginal pricing (with three months complimentary services on Prime membership), the 4G entrant’s “active subscribers as a percentage of total subscribers constantly falling with only 71% in April, which is disappointing. More so since Jio’s active subscribers as a percentage of total subscribers were at just 63.1% and 62.8% in Mumbai and Kolkata, respectively.” There were reports that Reliance Jio will be releasing its first 4G feature phone later this year, which may also adds some of the subscribers into their network. Reliance Jio has nearly four million new users to reach a consumer base of 112.55 million. While there were reports from TRAI which says that Reliance Jio has added 4 million Subscribers the only thing is the active subscribers that matters.
According to the information, Idea has done better in adding up 0.6 million active users into its network while the worst being Vodafone India which added only 0.3 million active users. Lets see what will Jio be doing in this process to add more subscribers while sustaining the challenge from other telcos.
