Reliance Jio Infocomm seems to be the next big player focused on LTE networks and services in the Indian market. Reliance Industries Limited says its Jio Digital service is dedicated to India and 120 crore Indians.
Ambani said at the launch of its 4G LTE network, “Jio is a data-strong network, built for the Internet from the ground up. It will cover 90 per cent of India’s population by March, 2017.”
The network, he adds, is the largest only 4G and VoLTE network in the world. “Jio is future proof as it is 5G and 6G ready,” Ambani added.
Samsung is the sole 4G equipment provider to Jio, having bagged successive contracts to supply equipment for over 140,000 sites for pan-India coverage.
