Reliance Jio & Reliance .munications Join Hands For A Pan-india Roaming Deal-coinwatch

Business Mukesh Ambanis Reliance Jio Info.m (RJIL) and Anil Ambanis Reliance .munications (R.) have signed a deal that will bring two highly selective frequency bands in Indias tele.munication space 800MHz and 2100 MHz respectively together. This deal will bring the Ambani brothers closer than ever. Currently, their alliance is restricted to sharing towers and fibre-optic network. This deal, which is going to be signed soon, will have enormous benefits for Reliance Jio. The newest entrant in Indias tele.munication sector, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) owns a pan-India 4G license. However, it faces challenges in the 2300 MHz and 1800 MHz spectrum bands that dont offer high-speed data indoors. This problem can be solved by using Reliance .munications 800 MHz band. R. has five MHz of 800-MHz spectrum in most circles across the country and currently, this spectrum is unused. After the spectrum is liberalised, it can be used for fourth generation (4G) long-term evolution (LTE) services, too. An Edge in a .petitive Environment: The tele. market is incredibly .petitive in India. Many .panies are vying for consumers business and possessing an advantage can give a brand the cutting they need to survive. As such, this deal with R. will give Mukesh Ambanis Reliance Jio roaming rights on R.s 2,100-MHz 3G band and offer services on this band. The roaming deal will bring Reliance Jio on a par with rivals who have an advantage in that they have spectrum across bands to offer seamless data and voice services. These rivals include two of the biggest players in Indias tele. sector Airtel and Vodafone. Reliance Jio, at the close of two auctions has spectrum in both, the 2300 MHz and 1800 MHz band. However, these arent ideally suited for 4G LTE data services, as tele. .panies have to invest large sums in more towers for quality similar to that in a lower band. Having signed a deal with Anil Ambanis Reliance .munications, its safe to say that this problem has been well and truly resolved. The respective .panies of the Ambani brother declined to .ment on this story. A big reason this agreement could shape up the way it had was because of the stay the Tele. Disputes Settlement and Appellate Tribunal had removed regarding a similar deal inked by Vodafone, Airtel and Idea. Reliance Jio and R. have already signed a number of deals. These include deals to share inter-circle and intra-circle fibre optic networks, as well as towers. Under the tower deal, Reliance Jio can use about 45,000 towers of R. across the country. For using the towers, Reliance Jio had promised to pay Rupees 12,000 crore for 10 years. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
