Jio adding new customer every month but not adding any new Tower/Infrastructure. Jio speed became worst in my village. All Voda/Idea customer ported to Jio in last 1 year. But not a single new tower added.
Now this is the speed of Jio in my area.

Vi losing 4.8 million users. Is this because of lockdown? Lockdown happened in March. People started losing jobs. Hence, couldn't recharge. TRAI has 90 days disconnection policy. Than if Vi, Airtel and BSNL were disconnecting at times of tragedy. They deserved losing millions of customers.

In coming days Jio will most likely gain more customers because of their new postpaid+ plans.

That's obvious uncertainty of VodafoneIdea and no new improvement in network made people left.
Apart from this during lockdown online classes boom the smartphone market which make people buy new phone with new SIM card and even now even kid using Jio.
Really feel bad when Vi talk about price hike instead of taking step in network improvement.

The net addition of new subscribers due to the postpaid plus plans won't be significant, since India is predominantly a prepaid market. Yes some of the existing postpaid subscribers of Airtel and Vi might consider switching ship but the churn rate in postpaid segment has always been low. Yes the postpaid plans will help in increasing Jio's revenue market share but won't have much impact on the subscriber market share.

Network improvement needs money and Vi has none. They are struggling to pay the AGR due installments and promoter group companies have declined to infuse fresh capital into the joint venture. So the only way they can raise money is by tariff hikes and then they can use that money for network expansion and upgradation. Ofcourse that's far fetched and the subscriber will rather switch to an operator that has good network today than to wait for Vi to improve in the future. Thus the constant subscriber loss

@Esmail bro. I disagree. These postpaid plans are really attractive specially for the young people who loves OTT who will likely join or upgrade to Jio's Postpaid+. You are getting premium OTTs worth ₹346.50. So you are basically paying ₹124.32 for 70 GB data with carry over facility of 200 GB. Premium customer service is a treat on top of that.
