It is also worth mentioning that out of the three operators, Vodafone Idea is going through a very rough phase where it is losing both subscribers and revenue. So, we believe Jio has achieved a top spot when it comes to revenue, but yet to dethrone Vodafone Idea for the no. 1 position in terms of subscribers.
