RIL plans to offer Data Services

Reliance Industries has planned to offer high-speed data services on attractively priced tablets by early next year and scale it up to a countrywide network by the middle of 2012.

The company is believed to offer 4G-enabled data cards that can be plugged into computers and laptops, apart from providing tablets at a game-changing price of Rs.3,000 or even lower to hook customers.

RIL has also initiated talks with media and entertainment companies to acquire content for its wireless broadband offerings. It plans to provide data connectivity with speeds of 50-100 Mbps, much faster than 3G services currently on offer, at cheaper prices.

RIL has said to acquired Infotel, a company that won pan-India spectrum for broadband wireless access last year and plans full-scale commercial operations by mid-2012. By then, it expects to have its networks ready across 700 cities.
