Mumbai: Reliance Communications said on Wednesday it would offer unlimited internet access to subscribers through their mobile phones at Rs99 ($2) per month.
The offering is part of the company’s plans to launch third-generation (3G) services in India, Reliance Communications, controlled by billionaire Anil Ambani, said in a statement.
The company had won key licences to offer 3G services in several regions across India, including Delhi and Mumbai — the biggest markets in the country, at the end of a government auction in May.
Last week, debt-laden Reliance Communications unveiled plans to sell up to a 26% stake in itself, after India sold licences for 3G wireless services at a price far higher than expected.
On Monday, the company said its board approved a proposal to bring investors into its tower arm and help create an independent tower company.
