BSNL was always in the first position in Land lines and Broadband with its valuable cables and OFC. It was thought no body can capture that position. But unfortunately, the latest statistics from TRAI gives another picture. BSNL has been relegated to the second position by Airtel.
The present market share in Broadband is as follows: Airtel 21.48%, BSNL 20.18%, Vodafone 18.91%, Idea 14.94 % and Reliance 14.94%. The balance are with small companies.
Now it is only in landline that BSNL is in No. 1 position. But again, BSNL lost 1.32 lakh connections in January 2015 alone. At present BSNL has got 1.68 crore connections only.
In mobile sector BSNL lost 12.36 connections in January 2015. At present it has got only 8.01 crore mobile connections just more than one third of what Airtel has got, which is 22.0 crore.
SAVE BSNL – SAVE NATION Campaign has to be energitised. The Management and workers have to discuss why the loss is happening and find out remedies to improve our position.
