Reliance Jio's capex may slow from FY25, say analysts
Reliance Jio's aggressive push for 5G deployment and the introduction of the Jio Bharat phone are anticipated to have a positive impact on the company's subscriber market share and boost the average revenue per user (ARPU) following potential tariff increases post the 2024 general elections. The completion of Jio's 5G rollout by the end of 2023 is seen as a significant development that is likely to enhance the telecom giant's return on capital employed (ROCE) and increase its free cash flow (FCF). As a result, analysts project a slowdown in Reliance Jio's capital expenditure (capex) starting from FY25, with the expectation that the telco's capital spending for this fiscal year will be approximately Rs 60,000 crore as it aims to achieve nationwide 5G coverage by December 2023.
