Bharti Airtel Boasts Of 300 Million Customers

Bharti Airtel, having operations in 20 countries across Asia and Africa, today announced that it has crossed the 300 million customers mark across its operations. The milestone includes customers across mobile, fixed line & DSL, and DTH services.

New-Airtel-LogoBharti Airtel reached the 100 million customers mark in 2009 and crossed the 200 million mark in 2012. The latest 100 million customers have joined the Airtel family in less than two years. The Company ranks as the fourth largest mobile service provider globally and second largest globally outside of China, as mentioned by the company in its press statement.

Bharti Airtel has achieved many landmarks in its career of 19 years since it started its operations in 1995 in India. The company has low-cost business model that has transformed the sector and helped in the proliferation of affordable mobile services. The company is the largest telecommunications company in India by customers and revenue. It put India on the data superhighway when it launched the country’s first 4G services in 2012.

In Africa, Bharti Airtel is the largest mobile operator in the Continent in terms of geographical footprint, which spans 17 countries with over 70 million customers.
Airtel’s mobile networks cover over 1.85 billion people across its operations in 20 countries and carry over 311 billion minutes of calls every quarter.

Mr. 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.”
