The Reliance Jio State Head Sunjoy Sur informed Chief Minister Pema Khandu that plans are afoot to launch Jio services at all district headquarters soon. Survey has already been done to study the feasibility of offering services at places like Tawang. At present, Jio has established its centres at Itanagar and Pasighat.
Sunjoy Sur called on Chief Minister Pema Khandu today at his offices here and gave details of Jio 4G services and the company’s plan for its expansion across Arunachal Pradesh.
Khandu appreciated Reliance Jio for launching its operations in the state and said that the revolution in ‘digitalization’ brought about by the services it will offer like free voice calls, SMS services and roaming along with excellent data speed is a boon for Arunachal Pradesh. He requested the network provider to expand its services to rural areas too.
On behalf the state government, Khandu welcomed the launching of Jio services and assured logistical support and cooperation.
“This is another important step towards ‘Digital India’ goal of the Prime Minister of India,” he observed.
The Chief Minister asked the state Information Technology Secretary, who was also present during the call-on, to coordinate and extend support wherever needed.
Sur offered to ‘join hands’ with the state government for ‘digital empowerment’ of the state. He explained that Jio is ready to cooperate with the state in offering Wi-Fi services in government establishments like schools, colleges, offices and institutes besides creating Wi-Fi hotspots in places most frequented by people.
The Jio official further informed that through its ‘fibre to home’ connectivity, three services– Wi-Fi, TV and landline – will be made available to subscribers in the coming days.
Meanwhile, the Reliance team formally handed over a letter from Reliance head Mukesh Ambani to the Chief Minister.
