New Delhi: Reliance Jio Infocomm announced on Wednesday that it will set up around 45,000 mobile towers in coming six months to enhance 4G network in the country.
“Reliance Jio in meeting with Telecom Minister (Manoj Sinha) has committed to installing 45,000 mobile towers in next six months to further strengthen its network. The company has said that it has plans to invest Rs. 1 lakh crore over a period of 4 years,” source said.
Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited (RJIL) has not given any information regarding the installation of towers.
The company will spend 1.6 crore Rs to establish 4G towers at 2.82 lakh base stations across the country. The towers will cover 18,000 cities and 2 lakh villages.
“Jio said that it has made all effort to provide good consumer experience but non-availability of point of interconnection from Airtel, Vodafone and Idea has led to high call failure rate on its network. Minister (Sinha) then directed telecom operators to resolve PoI issue among themselves at the earliest,” the source added.
A meeting was held by Reliance Jio on Tuesday to discuss about the interconnection issues. Bharti Airtel MD and CEO Gopal Vittal, Vodafone India MD and CEO Sunil Sood, Idea MD and CEO Himanshu Kapania and Reliance Jio Director Mahendra Nahata joined the meeting of TRAI on Tuesday.
