According to latest numbers from GSM and CDMA lobby groups, the share of BSNL & MTNL combined in the total number of phones in India (both landlines and mobiles) is below 40%. I had earlier reported in my blog that, MTNL & BSNL's combined share went below 50%. That was just few months ago. In a short span of time, it is now below 40%!For more, visit my blog.

That's good. When their market falls below 20% they will start providing free intra circle calls and then will start another telecom tariff war..:)

even I doubt these stats. MTNL has started regaining customers because of Triband and BSNL always was there up because of its reach and low tariffs.So I term this stats as "Crap" unless offcourse u give me some valid source for this info...

I ran a rough check. And these numbers look possible.All numbers are in mnNumber of BSNL subscribers (landline+GSM+CDMA) = 55.2# for MTNL = 5.8Total number of cell users in India (GSM+CDMA) = 116Market share of BSNL/MTNL in GSM (23+4) = 27%Non BSNL/MTNL cell users = 84.6That putes BSNL+MTNL's market share to be ~42%.

in case of mobile telephony BSNL/MTNL have a very low market share agreed but in terms of Fixed phones I dont think BSNL/MTNL can have a low share, they still hold the highest market share.

Its surprising to see that the mobile subscribers are double compared to fix line subscribers.

I guess the total of fixed+mobile subscribers brings down BSNL/MTNL in terms of market share!

Its not that surprising to me.

In an average family, there will be 1 landline.
But there will be one cell per earning member and per collage going student.

BSNL is loosing landline customers at rate of .3 MN per month (and this number is after adjusting for new connections in the same period). And private operators are gaining that share.

MTNL is even worse since Tata is eating away corporate customers in delhi/bombay. Can't share actual numbers since that data is not public, but it is horrific.
