Reliance Jio Big Bang Launch in Dec 2015
« on: June 15, 2015, 09:34:35 AM »
As predicted by our experts, Reliance Jio will go for a Big Bang nationwide launch coinciding with Founders Birth Anniversary and will have 80% population coverage at launch, compared to Bharti’s 86.8% 2G population coverage. It will scale up population coverage to 100% in 3 years.

The network has installed capacity for 100mn wireless and 20mn fiber customers. We are surprised with the scale of RJIO’s planned launch given that China Mobile, which operate in 2300MHz band,  has 720,000 sites for similar coverage, although China’s population/landmass is 1.1x/2.9x that of India.

Reliance Jio is also planning aggressive broadband roll out and expects to connect with 1mn homes by fiber by April 2016. It also has installed fiber capacity of 250,000 R kms (Bharti 197,000 R kms/Idea 93,400 R kms) and will be doubling it in 2 years. RJIO has also participated in creating international fiber network and expects to carry at least half of the international data traffic on its own network.

It has created data centre capacity of 0.5mn for its own use, which will be doubled in 2 years
