Monday, October 17, 2011 Reliance Industries Limited (RIL) is in talks with service providers and global technology players to provide 4G data services in the country by next year. It also has plans to offer high-speed data services on attractively priced tablets--Rs 3,000 or even lesser--by early next year.

The company then plans to scale it up to a countrywide network by the middle of next year, states an ET report. The decision to introduce low-cost tablets is to entice the masses. This strategy is similar to the company's move in 2003, when it took mobile telephony to the masses with its 'Monsoon Hungama' handsets launched at Rs 501. This had helped Reliance to win 1 million customers in just 10 days.

Reliance to launch Rs 3,000 tablet, Reliance Industries, 4G data services, Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson and China's Huawei, final phase of talks for broadband network services, high speed broadband, 'Monsoon Hungama' handsets, entice masses




According to sources, the company plans full-scale commercial operations for high-speed wireless broadband services and is considering a soft launch as early as December. The company is said to be in the final phase of talks with three vendors--Alcatel Lucent, Ericsson and China's Huawei--for its broadband gear. It is working on trials with equipments provided by all the three companies.

It is not yet sure if RIL will take up a single vendor or split the contracts between the three companies.
