CONTINUES TO BE COMMITTED TOWARDS COLLECTIVELY DRIVING THE DIGITAL INDIA VISION
Mumbai, 19th November 2019: Reliance Jio’s 4G only mobile data network is the world’s foremost with a mission to connect everyone and everything, everywhere – always at highest quality and best tariffs. Jio has always delivered superlative and affordable experience to the Indian consumers, through continued investments in the latest technologies.
Jio has revolutionised the Indian telecom sector by ushering in the age of latest data-centric technologies and propelled India into global digital leadership. As a technology disruptor and force multiplier, Jio acutely understands the transformative role telecommunications and digital services are playing for the Indian economy and society today.
Jio has enabled India as the world’s largest data-market growing from 20 crore GB per month in 2016 to over 600 crore GB per month now.
Despite the staggering growth in data-consumption and 4G coverage across the country, there are still over 40 crore Indian consumers who have not benefitted from the advent of the latest technologies. We believe that the ambitious objectives of the ‘Digital India’ mission can be achieved only if India is made “2G-mukt” in the shortest time-frame possible. The Government and TRAI should mandate this through policy. This requires continued investment at an industry level. The whole industry needs to come up the curve and raise standards to meet the aspirations of Indian citizens and fulfill the nation’s digital agenda.
