We have managed to serve the underserved areas in the cities we are present in through an expansive infrastructure and value for money offering. We aim to reach 10 lakh subscribers by the end of 2021, partnering with local cable and Internet operators to get coverage in 75% of the city which other operators/telcos are unable to cover. We grew, both in sales and average data usage by Excitel users (up to 35%) in a month during the lockdown. With a 25% growth in the first half of the year, we plan to continue the momentum with the internet now an essential commodity for millions across the country.”
