The Late Dhirubhai Ambani dreamt of a digital India - an India where the common man would have access to affordable means of information and communication. Dhirubhai, who single-handedly built Indiaâ€™s largest private sector company virtually from scratch, had stated as early as 1999: â€œMake the tools of information and communication available to people at an affordable cost. They will overcome the handicaps of illiteracy and lack of mobility.â€
It was with this belief in mind that Reliance Communications (formerly Reliance Infocomm) started laying 60,000 route kilometres of a pan-India fibre optic backbone. This backbone was commissioned on 28 December 2002, the auspicious occasion of Dhirubhaiâ€™s 70th birthday, though sadly after his unexpected demise on 6 July 2002.
Reliance Communications has a reliable, high-capacity, integrated (both wireless and wireline) and convergent (voice, data and video) digital network. It is capable of delivering a range of services spanning the entire infocomm (information and communication) value chain, including infrastructure and services â€” for enterprises as well as individuals, applications, and consulting.Today, Reliance Communications is revolutionising the way India communicates and networks, truly bringing about a new way of life.
RComâ€™s business encompasses a complete range of telecom services covering mobile and fixed line telephony. It includes broadband, national and international long distance services and data services along with an exhaustive range of value-added services and applications. The company's constant endeavour is to achieve customer delight by enhancing the productivity of the enterprises and individuals it serve.
Reliance Mobile (formerly Reliance India Mobile), launched on December 28, 2002, coinciding with the joyous occasion of the late Dhirubhai Ambaniâ€™s 70th birthday, was among the initial initiatives of Reliance Communications. It marked the auspicious beginning of Dhirubhaiâ€™s dream of ushering in a digital revolution in India. Today, we can proudly claim that we were instrumental in harnessing the true power of information and communication, by bestowing it in the hands of the common man at affordable rates.
