Is India the fastest growing mobile subscribers market in the world ? The total number of cellular subscribers base at the end of Q2-2006 is 105,279,394 compared to 89,346,559 a quarter ago. GSM operators still control more than 60% of the market. Bharti-Airtel is India’s number one mobile service provider with a market share of 21.9% followed closely by Reliance Communications Ventures(includes Reliance Infocomm(CDMA provider) & Reliance Telecom(GSM provider)) at 21.25%. Reliance needs to be transperent in its operations by declaring quarterly results of the company. (Send me if you have them. Several requests to the company has yielded no results).
