Reliance Comm to expand Pro 3 data network offering 14.7 Mbps speed

Indian telecom service provider Reliance Communications has unveiled its Pro 3 data network offering speeds of up to 14.7 Mbps.

Reliance Communications does not mention the guaranteed minimum speed.

In fact, Reliance Communications announced the availability of speeds up to 14.7 Mbps when it shared its second quarterly result.

Interestingly, Reliance Communications’ Capex (capital spending) decreased 27 percent to Rs 302 crore in Q2 fiscal 2015 from Rs 415 crore in the prior quarter.

The Mumbai-based company says the Capex investment will assist the company to launch Wi-Fi dongles and standalone Wi-Fi routers to offer better data experience up to 20 connected devices simultaneously.

In the first phase, the billionaire Anil Ambani-promoted Reliance Communications has launched the Pro 3 network in Chennai, Bengaluru, Hyderabad and Pune. The company will introduce high speed data network in other key cities shortly.

Customers who need to use large amounts of data at high speeds can enjoy limitless Internet usage on any of these devices at a monthly plan of Rs 999.

Gurdeep Singh, chief executive officer, Consumer Business, Reliance Communications, said: “Pro 3 enables Reliance Communications to churn in customers and extend its data customer acquisition footprint, especially among those with a need for speed and reliable indoor coverage.”

Reliance Communications has nearly 30 million data customers across the country. The number of 3G subscribers at Reliance Communications increased 16 percent to 15.1 million in Q2 fiscal 2015 from 13 million in the prior quarter.

The company’s telecom network is supplemented by its IP back-haul for a superior data usage experience. Further, its fiber-linked towers will help carry the incremental traffic, offering a superior data experience.
