Idea said it saw a 13 per cent QoQ growth of minutes on network. However, hyper-competitive market conditions caused a 5.4 per cent decline in the average realized rate to Re.0.44 per minute.

Figures for the current period are not comparable with that of the corresponding period because of the merger of Spice Communications Ltd. effective March 01, 2010.
