October 9, 2013

Bollywood actress Kaif displays the Sony Xperia Z high-end smartphone in New Delhi Subscriber additions by India’s top mobile service providers bounced back in August after a slump in the previous month. Bharti Airtel Ltd, Vodafone India Ltd and Idea Cellular Ltd reported a cumulative increase of 1.5 million, compared with 0.17 million in July.
Subscriber additions of the top three firms are still a far cry, compared with the monthly average of 2.9 million subscribers added during the April-June period. But this is partly because of a decline in the subscriber numbers of Vodafone for the second consecutive month. Bharti and Idea reported an increase of 1.59 million in August and 0.78 million in July, compared with an average monthly addition of 2.03 million during the June quarter. Source
