Reliance Jio – R.Com Deal
Reliance Jio is ready to buy the spectrum and all the wireless network infrastructure of Reliance Communications in an attempt to pull out RCom from the loan defaults. The Reliance-Jio and R.Com deal will put both the companies in an advantageous position but this will subsequently lead to increase in tariffs. Reliance Communications has signed an agreement with Reliance Jio for the sale of its wireless network and 4G services that include 43000 towers and MCNs.
