Jio Fiber

In just two years of commercial rollout of fixed-line broadband services, Reliance Jio has managed to become the top wired broadband provider in the country. It now leads with 4.34 million customers across the country. The company has beat 20 -year-old state-run telecom company BSNL that dominated the business for about 20 years.

Reliance Jio had around 4.34 million customers in November, up from 4.16 million in October. BSNL’s customers declined to 4.2 million in November from 4.72 million in October. Bharti Airtel is the third-largest wired broadband provider with 4.08 million customers in November.

When Reliance Jio began its operation back in September 2019, BSNL already had 8.69 million wired broadband customers. In two years, BSNL lost almost half of its customers.

Here’s a list of the top 5 wired broadband providers with their active userbase.
