Bharti Airtel Ltd expects to add another 100 million users

By Super Admin

New Delhi, May 16 (ANI): Bharti Airtel Limited chairman Sunil Mittal expects to add another 100 million users to its kitty in the coming years.

Mittal said India had emerged as a dominant player in the field of telecommunications.

"For the first time, India has emerged as a dominant player in one field and that is telecommunications. I have no doubt of going forwards in next five to seven years. India would cross several more 100 million customers. There would be other countries that would follow this number of 100 million. Overall some estimates suggest that we should be looking at 75 per cent of the tele-density and that means 800-750 million customers. Therefore our resolve to start the clock one more time and say how we get to our next 100 million customers," said Mittal.

60 per cent of the company's subscriber base is in the rural areas, which was once considered unviable.

India has second-largest telecom user base in the world after China and ahead of the US. Now, it has 429.72 million telecom subscribers, both in the wireless and mobile segments, with a record growth of 59.48 per cent last fiscal. (ANI)
