June 18, 2015 9:58 pm

We spotted this stat today –

“The Active connection data represents peak VLR (Visitor Location Register) data for the month. Some stats:

– There were 869.97 million active connection in the month of April.
– Strangely, Idea apparently has 102.60% of connections active on its network – the highest among all telcos. TRAI says the percentage of active connections is more than 100% due to in-roamers i.e. subscribers from other operators roaming in Idea’s network.
– RCom has the second highest active connection base of 97.67%, followed by Airtel at 95.76%.”


We had spotted a stat recently on how cashless transactions overtook paper based transactions in India – and of course, some India credit card statistics. Emerging indeed.
