The telecom major is scheduled to come out with its June quarter earnings today which is expected to show COVID-related stress. Sequentially, the numbers may come on a softer side.

Brokerage firms are of the view that the company's Q1 scorecard may show signs of pressure with overall revenue and ARPU shrinking.

"India wireless revenues and ARPU are anticipated to stay stable sequentially. Mix improvement will get offset by free recharges and moderation in data subscriber adds due to the second wave of COVID-19," Emkay said.

Kotak Institutional Equities in a report said Bharti Airtel's India wireless revenues to moderate to Rs 13,900 crore and EBITDA to decline 4 percent QoQ and a 3 percent moderation in ARPUs to Rs 145 per month, reflecting the impact of lockdowns.

Brokerage firm Motilal Oswal Financial Services expects Airtel's ARPU to decline by 2 percent QoQ in Q1FY22.

Motilal expects the company's Indian mobile subscribers to remain flat sequentially. Indian wireless revenue may also remain flat QoQ while there may be a 2 percent revenue growth in the enterprise business.
