Reliance Communications (Rcom) on Monday said the company would welcome the entry of Reliance Industries into the telecom sector. “If there is a responsible player going to expand the data pie, it’s a very good news,” Syed Safawi, president & chief executive of RCom’s wireless business unit said.

He also said RCom was talking to other telecom companies to offer its telecom towers on lease. He, however, did not elaborate on the companies in a conference call with analysts.

While its peers reported muted traffic/revenue growth numbers due to a seasonally weak quarter, RCom registered a 2.1 per cent and 1.6 per cent sequential growth in wireless revenue and traffic.

The company said it would be able to maintain revenues per minute at 44-45p on the back of reducing free minutes on the network and focusing on paid minutes. The company is after the high margin, non-voice segment, now a fifth of revenues, as well as third-generation (3G) services to improve average revenue per user. It has 2.1 million active 3G users.

Reliance Infocom, the telecom arm of the undivided Reliance Group, began its services on December 28, 2002, the birthday of the group’s founder Dhirubhai Ambani.
  • An industry executive confided in ET that RIL may focus on three to four models, all of which are likely to be priced between Rs 3000 to Rs 8000 and that the entry-level tablets may have Google’s android operating system. Industry executives also confirmed that RIL was not considering UK-based Datawind, which recently launched the world’s cheapest tablet – Aakash – priced at $35 or Rs 1,750 for students with the Indian government sourcing these device at Rs 2,256.
