Telecom subscriber numbers dip

Telecom subscriber base fell to 944.81 million in July from 965.52 million a month ago, the first ever decline in India.
The subscriber base report for July released by Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (Trai) shows that overall telecom user base of the country dropped by 20.71 million subscribers over June.
The biggest loss in user base came from Reliance Communications that lost 20.48 million users, followed by Tata Teleservices, Uninor, Videocon, Loop and MTNL.
Trai has asked telecom companies to de-activate international calling facility in pre-paid numbers and restore it only after a subscriber gives his consent.
