Telecoms in India looks towards a fresh period of growth

After a major hiccup back in 2012, India’s mobile market had sorted itself out to a large extent by 2015 and subscriber growth looked to be running at a steady 7% per annum. By March 2015 there were 970 million subscribers representing a mobile penetration of 77%. Mobile penetration was likely to reach 100% by 2020.

The overall economic impact of mobile technology in India amounted to approximately US$115 billion in value-added terms in 2014, this representing an economic contribution of around 5.5% of the country’s GDP for the year. Looking forward, mobile broadband was set to grow exponentially throughout India, driving digital inclusion and economic growth for India’s consumers and businesses. Into 2015 4G and other data services were shaping as a key battleground. The entry of a new operator Reliance Jio into the market was expected to see even more intense competition in an already hotly competitive market.

By mid-2015 there was already considerable progress in the roll-out of 4G services:

  • Bharti Airtel was operating a TD-LTE network;
  • Bharti had also launched a trial FDD LTE network in 20 cities;
  • Aircel had launched 4G services;
  • Vodafone was planning to launch 4G in Calcutta, Mumbai and Delhi by December 2015;
  • Reliance Jio was set to introduce its 4G network by the end of 2015;
  • Idea Cellular was reported to be set to launch LTE services in January 2016;
  • BSNL was preparing to launch 4G by March 2016.

  • mobile penetration had reached 77%, with room for considerably further growth;
  • mobile ARPUs appeared to be stabilising and was even seeing modest growth;
