Mukesh Ambani has launched a wired broadband service JioGigaFiber at the 41st annual general meeting (AGM) of Reliance Industries on Thursday. "India ranks low in fixed broadband. The company has already invested more than 250 million dollars in the industry. We will now extend the service 1100 cities to offer the most advanced fibre-based broadband services. This will mean a faster internet experience. A virtual reality experience for all citizens where you can control switches in your house from outside as well. This will redefine 24*7 emergency help for all homes across India. We are calling this the JioGigaFibre," Ambani added. For the last few years, the Mukesh Ambani-owned oil-to-retail-to-telecom conglomerate has made massive Jio-related announcements during the AGM.
As we kick off our Golden Decade with a flourish, we remind ourselves of Reliance’s unwavering commitment towards India’s rise. May the God Almighty bless us in our endeavour: Mukesh Ambani at RIL's 41st AGM.
