Shares in Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) have raced to a seven-year high, boosted by its recent announcement to soon start charging for data services offered by its Jio 4G mobile services that have notched up 100 million customers in just 170 days since launch.
As Jio’s end-to-end LTE solutions partner, it is a great pleasure for Samsung to contribute to Jio’s tremendous success. The massive deployment of over a million cells across India is especially remarkable. We will strive to create new paradigms for LTE-Advanced Pro and 5G by closely cooperating with Jio as a unified workforce," said Youngky Kim, President and Head of Networks Business at Samsung Electronics.
