According to data from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI), the country added 10.07 million mobile subscribers in September to reach a total of 315.3 million active SIM cards. The increase was higher than rises of 9.16 million new connections the previous month. The net additions came despite warnings that Indiaís economy will be hit by a downturn in the local stock markets and weaker consumer spending. The countryís total fixed line subscribers dropped from 38.63 million in August to 38.35 at end-September, added the TRAI.
