Mumbai, June 7 (IANS) Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL) Thursday said it is finalising plans to roll out broadband services across the country in key domains like financial services, education and entertainment.

“We are currently finalising our plans to offer services on a nation-wide basis,” Chairman Mukesh Ambani said at the 38th annual general meeting of the company.

“We plan to provide an ever growing range of digital services in key domains of national interest such as education, healthcare, security, financial services, government-citizen interfaces and entertainment,” he added without specifying exact date of the launch.

Ambani said the digital initiative will be an additional and significant value creator for Reliance and its shareholders.

“Reliance has a unique greenfield opportunity to create a state-of-the art digital services platform, without being constrained by any legacy issues. Our vision is to help develop the hard, soft and social infrastructure needed to create an integrated digital services business model,” Ambani said.

Infotel Broadband, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, had won pan-India broadban wireless access (BWA) spectrum in 2010.
