"We believe India has a unique opportunity to surpass the world and become a leader in delivery of digital content," claims RIL chairman and CEO Mukesh Ambani in Reliance Industries' Annual Report for FY13, adding that its company, Reliance Jio Infocomm, plans to offer fast Internet connectivity on a pan-India basis, and also enable "end-to-end solutions that address the entire value chain across various digital services in key domains of national interest such as education, healthcare, security, financial services, government-citizen interfaces and entertainment." To that end, Ambani says that RJIL has finalised key agreements with its technology partners, service providers, infrastructure providers, application partners, device manufacturers and other strategic partners for the 4G project. The report says that RJIL has completed the detailed planning for a pan-India implementation of the infrastructure needed for the project, which is yet to see the light of day. Which services is RIL going to focus on? Nothing explicit in the report, but in terms of where RIL wants to go, there are indicators. The report says that "broadband access to people can truly transform lives of Indians by getting access to a wide array of offerings, such as access to internet, email, voice and video communications, news, productivity, social networking, games, education, health and fitness, finance, travel, e-commerce, e-governance and homeland security services." RIL plans to use TDD LTE technology to provide connectivity and related digital services to its customers. (Read our compilation of everything on Reliance Jio).
