- Our aim and resolve is to ensure that India rises from the present 135th rank to be amongst the top three nations in fixed broadband within the next three years.

- Since Reliance Jio commenced operations a little over two years ago, India has moved from 155th rank in mobile broadband penetration to being the number one nation in mobile data consumption in the world.

- The group is taking another step to propel Odisha further into the digital future.
