Reliance Infocomm will commercially launch its broadband service over its optical fibre network during the next few weeks as a part of which the company would offer bandwidth ranging from 64 kilo bits per second to one giga bits per second. Over the next two-three months, the company plans to reach 2,00,000 homes through its fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband plan, informed Reliance Infocomm president Prakash Bajpai.
As part of its broadband offerings, the company plans to offer leased line and virtual private network (VPN) among others, said Mr Bajpai.
However, Mr Bajpai declined to comment on the exact dates as to when the company plans to launch its prepaid service. As has been reported earlier, the company has announced that it plans to launch its prepaid service soon.
On the numbering scheme that prepaid users of the company will be alloted, he said, “It would depend on whether we would have migrated to the new numbering scheme at the time of the launch.” It may be recalled that Reliance Infocomm has been asked by the government to migrate its fully mobile subscribers to a new ten-digit numbering scheme.
On when the company plans to launch international roaming services, Mr Bajpai said, “We are working on it.” However, he declined to give an exact time frame within which the company would launch the service.
