By closing following the TRAI subscription data, one can certify that Reliance Jio is losing the momentum which it used to garner during the initial days of the launch.
To the unaware, Reliance Jio has secured its place by purchasing more spectrum during the recently concluded Telecom Spectrum Auction 2021. If the company has to achieve its growth targets, Reliance Jio has to bring new users under its belt.
