As per Videocon, majority of its data users comprises of youth segment, who use mobile data irrespective of time of the day. Approx 1/5th (20%) of data usage happens btw midnight to 7AM, and is growing on a monthly basis. Further, approx 17% of data users consume more than 50% of their data during night hours. The network utilisation is low at night hrs and hence customers will enjoy good data download speeds, that too free of cost.
Speaking about the same, Arvind Bali, director and the chief executive officer, Videocon Telecom said, "Data is the growth engine for telecom industry, and its imperative that there is enough and more traction on data offerings for customer engagement. Our double data offer is an initiative in the same direction. We are confident that this industry first initiative will help us accelerate our data growth."
"Last year we grew our data business by 126 per cent, which is almost double the pace of the industry data growth at 74 per cent.This initiative along with other micromarketing initiatives on data will for sure help us surpass our growth of last year" Bali further added.
The telco feels that the double data initiative would increase its overall data consumption by over 50 per cent and data revenue by approx 25 per cent in next 6 months. The growth will be driven by organic subscriber base growth, increase in data penetration by approx 6 per cent; and data consumption per user per month, which the telco expects to go up by 20 per cent to 230 MB.
