Reliance Communications – winning Market Share, but at a Price

Reliance ended Q1 with 72.7m mobile customers. This compares with 61.3m three months earlier and 45.8m at the end of the fiscal year 07/08, gains of 10.3m and 26.9m respectively. The company claims to be “India’s largest integrated communications service provider” but the claim has something of a hollow ring when its numbers are set alongside those of Bharti Airtel. Reliance may be integrated, for what that’s worth, but it just isn’t as big as Bharti, either by revenues or customers. Its customer base of 77m (including Broadband) is less than Bharti’s 96.7m, while its revenues – INR61.2bn in this latest quarter – fall well short of Bharti’s INR98.2m.
