Reliance Communications or RCom recently reviewed the ongoing strategic transformation programme and considered alternate plans for debt reduction. The telecom company revealed its future plans in a meeting that was conducted of late.

RCom made a few announcements which are as follows:

Mobile Business

Through optimization of its spectrum portfolio and by adopting a 4G focused mobile strategy, RCom will be evaluating an alternate plan for its mobile business. They even asked their Gujarat based subscribers to shift to 4G technology. In a press statement it was announced that the operator RCom has an advantage of capital light access to the 4G mobile network through spectrum sharing and ICR agreements with Reliance Jio.

Through addition of Sistema Shyam Teleservices Ltd or SSTL’s spectrum holding in 800-850 MHz, RCom’s spectrum portfolio will be strengthened by 30Mhz and this will also increase the company’s spectrum validity period in 8 important circles of the country.

Calling Off Aircel Merger

RCom and Aircel had signed agreements for a proposed merger in 2016. However, as per the official press statement, the expectant merger agreement has lapsed owing to the intense competition in the Indian telecom sector along with fresh policy directives that have impacted the bank financing for this sector.

B2B Business – Domestic and Local

Besides being a communications service provider RCom has B2B operations in Enterprise, Carrier, Internet data centre and global submarine cable network in India and overseas. To add more value for all stakeholders, the Board of RCom has planned to maintain its focus on their existing B2B businesses.
