The analyst report has noted that the biggest beneficiary.

“Bharti Airtel could be the primary beneficiary of this price hike with its ARPU (Average Revenue Per User) going up from Rs 208 to Rs 286 by the end of FY 27, ” said the report. It also added that the revenue of Bharti Airtel might increase to twice the industry average in the next three years. The revenue hike is led by a growth in tariffs, 2G upgradation, growth of enterprise and Fibre to Home network, and fall in capital expenditure after the 5G rollout.
