With 23 per cent market share Reliance Jio only second to Airtel, says Truecaller report
As per a report by TrueCaller, Reliance Jio has jumped up to number 2 in terms of users and with a market share of more than 23 per cent.

Truecaller's TrueInsights report for Q4, 2016 states that ever since Jio's services were opened for users in September 2016, it has grown aggressively.

Detailing the report in to usage by top ten regions, the report says that Delhi is leading the way. As per the report, Airtel and Jio have an even share of usage across all the regions. In Delhi and Mumbai, Vodafone dominated the market while Idea has a significant strength in Maharashtra.

But Jio doesn't seem to be doing too well on the calling front. Although it might have gained a good market share but most of the customers are using it for data usage purpose only. According to the report by Truecaller, Vodafone users make the longest calls with an average of around 41 seconds. On the other hand, Jio users make the shortest calls, that have an average of less than 30 seconds.

"It is surprising to see the shorter call duration since there is generally little difference between operators," the report states.

Though once the calls are analysesd, Jio users, comparatively, seem to be making the most calls per user but according to the report, these mostly seem to be redials. The redials are due to the high rate of dropped calls on the Jio network.

Though Truecaller's data is limited to users who have installed the app, but it can be indicative of a market trend. The company has said that that the data was gathered anonymously and included both incoming as well as outgoing calls during the period from July 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016.
