Jio president Mathew Oommen said, “Businesses have been deprived of telecom connectivity so far and Jio intends to bridge that gap through its affordable offerings.”
At present, the country has 5,000 large enterprises and 1.4 million small and medium businesses, apart from 51 million registered micro, small and medium enterprises. Out of this, 1 million have wireline connectivity.
Bharti Airtel has more than 1.7 million enterprise customers that contribute 22% of its revenue.
Mathew added: “The next big transformation for businesses will be access to affordable ultra-broadband.”
He said: “Micro, small and medium enterprises (MSME) control 38% of the GDP (gross domestic product) of this nation. Access to broadband will allow them to transform and help in not just reskilling, but will upskill as they participate fully in the digital economy.”
