Reliance ties up with LG Electronics for Internet services

MUMBAI: Telecom service provider Reliance Infocomm has announced an agreement with consumer electronics manufacturer LG Electronics to offer instant, assured and uninterrupted Internet connectivity on LG Desktop Personal Computers.


As per the agreement, those buying LG desktop computers across India will be provided the Reliance Cordless Fixed Wireless Phone (FWP) and a data cable to avail of Internet connectivity at speeds that promise to exceed dial-up speeds.

With its pan-India CDMA2000 1x network, Reliance wireless products enable anytime, anywhere, high-speed Internet connectivity through the popular R-Connect service platform. The maximum possible download speed is 144 kbps.



All Reliance Infocomm' wireless products can be used as wireless modems for Internet access. Says Reliance Infocomm COO Kamal Nanavaty, "This agreement with LG Electronics is yet another step forward in the company's commitment to bring about a digital revolution in India by changing the way Indians communicate, get entertained and do business. Internet connectivity in India has lagged behind due to poor quality networks and high access costs. Through this tie-up, we are trying to bridge both - the access and cost gaps. With our Phase II expansion underway, Reliance Infocomm services will soon cover the far-flung interiors of India and this tie-up will help boost Internet penetration."

LG states that with the new deal the end consumer will have the added advantage of using an Internet-ready PC with wireless connectivity. This move will offer seamless Internet connectivity. "The offering will not only optimize PC usage experience with seamless Internet connectivity but will in the long run contribute to accelerating the much needed Internet penetration in the country," the company says.

R-Connect is a Reliance service platform to provide 'anytime, anywhere', instant and uninterrupted Internet connectivity, supporting high-speed data transfer. Reliance wireless products can be used as wireless modems to connect to the Internet from personal computers, laptops or hand-held devices.
