Reliance Jio continues to seize more revenue market share of other telecom operators. A fresh report reveals that the company has seen progress in its revenue market share for the sixth consecutive quarter, while Vodafone Idea is constantly losing it. Furthermore, Reliance Jio has secured almost 10 percentage points of revenue market share from Vodafone Idea since 2017, BloombergQuint reports. The report highlighted that Airtel, on the other hand, has barely witnessed 4 percent of dip during the same period.

The Mukesh Ambani led telecom company now has a total of 30 percent Revenue Market Share (RMS). Additionally, the report stated that “the revenue market share is calculated based on the adjusted gross revenue—factoring in interconnect usage charges and other deductions—provided by the TRAI. It includes national long-distance revenue. Excluding national long-distance revenue, Reliance Jio’s revenue market share stands at 38.1 percent—the highest in the industry.”
