ICICI Direct Report

Post the interconnection usage charges impact in Q4 FY21, Q1 FY22 was marked by the second wave led lockdown (impacting subscriber addition) and extension of validity for bottom of the pyramid customers, which will restrict average revenue per users.

For Bharti Airtel Ltd., we bake in subscriber addition of ~2 million, while for Vodafone Idea Ltd., we expect subscriber loss of ~4 million (versus ~2 million in Q4).
