Reliance Communications added 2.5 million new subscribers, taking its subscriber base to 113.3 million. Vodafone added 2.4 million connections taking its user base to 111.4 subscribers.

According to the data, the broadband subscriber base grew 2.67 percent from 9.45 million in June to 9.77 million in July 2010.
