About Reliance Communications

History 

Reliance Communications (RCOM) was founded in India on July 15, 2004, as Reliance Infocomm Limited with the introduction of its nationwide CDMA2000 service. It became Reliance Communications Limited in 2006 and was listed in March 2006. The company introduced its GSM service in 2008. It began using MIMO technology in 2011 to improve the quality of its 3G service, providing a data rate of up to 28 Mbit/s.

In the 2010 spectrum auction, Reliance Communications obtained licences for 3G spectrum in three cities at a total licencing fee of ₹58.64 billion (equivalent to ₹130 billion or US$1.6 billion in 2023). The company reduced the price of its 3G service by 61% in May 2012.

Reliance Communications was once one of India’s largest telecom operators, but it began to struggle financially in the early 2010s. The company faced stiff competition from other telecom operators, such as Reliance Jio, Bharti Airtel, and Vodafone Idea. In addition, RCOM was burdened by a large debt load.

In 2017, RCOM sold its wireless assets to Reliance Jio for ₹24,000 crore (equivalent to ₹31,000 crore or US$3.9 billion in 2023). The company continued to operate its fiber optic network, but it was unable to generate enough revenue to service its debt.

RCOM was once a pioneer in the Indian telecom industry. The company introduced many new services and technologies, such as the nationwide CDMA2000 service and MIMO technology. However, the company was unable to keep up with the competition, and in 2019, it was forced to file for bankruptcy. The company has been trying to sell its assets to repay its debt, but it has been unsuccessful.

As of March 2020, the company reworked its strategy and continues to operate 4G data services, fixed-line communications, data centre services, and enterprise solutions, as well as subsea cable networks under the banner name “Global Cloud Xchange.
