TRAI-LogoNew Delhi, India, October 19, 2013: Reliance JioInfocomm (RJIL), a part of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL), has received a letter of intent from the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) as an approval of unified license which will allow the operator to offer voice services to its customers.

As part of the deal, RJIL has to pay one-time entry fee of Rs 1673 crore along with performance bank guarantee of Rs 220 crore and a financial bank guarantee of Rs 44 crore. RJIL had been testing voice and messaging services to be rolled out on the 2-MHz 2.3 GHz spectrum band for some time now.

The licence allows Reliance JioInfocomm, to buy, operate and sell undersea and/or terrestrial fibre connectivity, set up its internet point of presence, offer internet transit and peering services as well as data and voice roaming services in Singapore.

RJIL is eyeing Odisha in east India for tapping the data market and started discussions with the government there regarding the same. The State Housing and Urban Development department has asked RIL to submit a concrete proposal on development of infrastructure for the purpose.The recent cycle however has led to a delay in the implementation of this.

Analysys Mason said India will account for 5 percent of LTE 4G connections worldwide by 2018. They think the developing countries like India, Brazil, China and Russia will push 4G/LTE data market. Operators like Reliance Jio, BhartiAirtel and China Mobile will be key 4G operators in Asia.
