Telcos to invest ₹ 50-60000 crore this year

India has become the world's largest data consuming nation in the last one year, Mukesh Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Industries, said at the opening of India Mobile World Congress in New Delhi.

Hailing India as one of the biggest telecom markets in the world, while addressing the Indian Mobile Congress 2017 (IMC) at Pragati Maidan here, Ambani said that data is a "vital life-sustaining resource" which should be provided to all Indians at the most feasible cost. "As an industry, we have the urgent task of empowering 1.3 billion Indians with the tools needed to flourish in the digital marketplace", Mukesh Ambani said at the event. We can not deprive Indians of this vital life-sustaining resource.We have to provide ubiquitous access to high-speed data at affordable prices and at the same time, we have to ensure that every Indian has access to the affordable smartphone that connects them to limitless knowledge and the power of the internet. Further, he also stated that 4G network is projected to surpass 2G network in the next twelve months. However, there is still a chance for India to jump into the fourth industrial revolution which is fueled by connectivity, data and artificial intelligence.

Giving examples, he talked about his recent visit to Google's campus, where products like Android's new phone, Android Go; and YouTube Lite, were being created keeping India in mind. "The Indian mobile market is now overflowing with data".

Orlando Congressman calls for more federal aid for Puerto Rico
If a foreign ship unloads in Puerto Rico , it must pay high tariffs, taxes and fees, costs which get passed along to consumers. Even before the winds and waves of hurricanes Irma and Maria began to lash its shores, Puerto Rico was in dire shape.

Bharti Airtel Chairman Sunil Mittal said India has the potential to become the world's largest telecom market but the industry would require congenial government policies to do so. Led by the Department of Telecommunication, the India Mobile Congress is organised by Cellular Operators Association of India (COAI), the industry association of mobile and telecom operators and internet companies. "In the next 10 years, the Indian economy will grow from the present 2.5 trillion to over 7 trillion, and will rank among the top three economies in the world", Mukesh Ambani said. We have it in super-abundance.

Digital technologies, he said, can be a boon for achieving national priorities of energy, water and resource security. India does not need to import it.

The local government should understand the power of "Digital India" and the importance of what we are trying to do.

She was arrested at the time for taking part in the actions, and later wrote a book about her experience. Many Saudi women rely on ride-sharing apps like Uber and Careem to take relish some freedom of movement.

He also emphasised the need for investing in creating next-generation technology, breaking silos, and forging partnerships.

Mittal said the telecom industry is offering "yeoman service" and infusing large amounts of money in strengthening infrastructure. No corporate, nor the government, wcan do it alone.
