Users are likely to see a surge in mobile bills by the end of 2020 as telecom companies look to increase the prices by 25-30 per cent, say media reports. The average revenue per user (ARPU) of the Indian telecoms continue to stay low this year and their consumer spends are the lowest globally, according to industry experts. At this rate, the telecom providers are estimated to hike their ARPU from Rs 120 to Rs 160 in the coming quarters.

Telecom companies like Bharti Airtel and Vodafone Idea may have to raise prices after they got no relief from the Supreme Court for their adjusted gross revenue dues. Users can expect big price hikes from their telecom providers like Bharti Airtel and Reliance, if Vodafone Idea were to collapse.

More than a month ago, service providers like Vodafone, Reliance and Airtel hiked their tariffs by 14-33 per cent first time in three years.
