Airtel reaches the 300 million customers mark


Bharti Airtel one of the leading telecom operator has announced that it has crossed the 300 million mark of customers across different verticals including across mobile, fixed line & DSL, and DTH services. The company began its journey in way back 1995 and reached the 100 million mark in 2009, which was later increased to 200 million in the year 2012. With this new achievement at hand Airtel has become the fourth largest service provider globally.

Airtel is one of the top service providers of India and the company is excelling in every category in the Indian market. After successfully launching the 3G services even to the remote part of the country, the company is now focusing on 4g. Of late Airtel has rolled out its 4G services in many different cities of India.

Coming on this achievement, Gopal Vittal, Managing Director and CEO (India and South Asia) Bharti Airtel, said, “This milestone underlines the strength of our operations, which is one of the largest on a global scale. It is also a tribute to the ‘Airtel’ brand which is trusted by customers in 20 countries, making it the largest global consumer brand out of India. Today, telecom is at the cusp of transformation, which, going forward will be driven as much by the force of technology as by the changing demographics in emerging markets across Asia and Africa. Accelerated data consumption by the youth is going to be the underlying story. I am confident that Airtel will continue to be at the forefront of this future growth story and continue to delight customers by adding value to their lives”.
