Reliance Jio making Digital India project Reality
As part of PM Project ” Digital India ” , Reliance Jio is on the move to connect Central Delhi with wi-fi. Reliance Jio is already connecting Kolkatta on free wi-fi.
As reported by ET, “NDMC has asked Reliance Jio to install Wi-Finetwork in area that falls under its jurisdiction. Reliance Jio has been asked to complete roll out by June,” an official source told PTI. “Reliance Jio has already started installation and have expressed to complete roll out before June,” the source said.
Deadline is December 2015 to cover cities and towns with population of over 10 Lakhs as well as key tourist destinations with Wi-Fi services as part of Prime Minister’s pet project of ‘Digital India’. Top 25 cities are expected to achieve this target by June 2015.
Reliance Jio plans to roll out 4G telecom services across country in 5,000 towns and cities, accounting for over 90 per cent of urban India and over 215,000 villages.
As per the rules, August 2015 is the deadline for all companies which won BWA spectrum in 2010 to roll out the services in at least 90 per cent of the service areas. Failing that, the Department of Telecom will have the right to withdraw the radiowaves given to the companies.
