Airtel And Vodafone-Idea Performance In April This Year

Airtel only added 2.6 million new users, which has taken its active user base to 347 million and its active user share is close to 34.8 percent. On the other hand, Vodafone-Idea lost 2.1 million users, which has decreased its active user base share to 25. 47 percent and now serving 254 million users.

However, JM Financial said that a decline in the Vodafone-Idea users base shows that lockdown affected its business compare to its competitors.

"Relatively more susceptible to lockdowns and SIM consolidations compared to its peers due to the presence of a larger number of lower-ARPU 2G subscribers," the firm added. It further added that the telecom operator added more users in urban areas and is losing users in rural areas.

Notably, TRAI active and VLR data said suggests the actual number of customers on the same network. The latest numbers show that Reliance Jio has 78. 37 percent, Airtel has 98.31 shares, and Vodafone-Idea has 89.97 percent.

It is worth noting that both leading telecom operators are looking at a 27 percent market share among rural users. This might help both Airtel and Reliance Jio as Vodafone-Idea has acquired a new spectrum in March. However, we believe will increase trouble for Vodafone-Idea as it is not investing in its network and losing customers in both rural and urban areas.
