Reliance Industries, which has pan-India spectrum for broadband services, said on Thursday it is finalising plans to offer internet services in key areas of education, security, financial services and entertainment.

The company however, did not give a launch date of its much-anticipated service.

"We are currently finalising our plans to offer services on a nation-wide basis and will be happy to report our progress in the coming years," RIL chairman and managing director Mukesh Ambani said while addressing the company shareholders.

He said the company plans to provide digital services in key domains such as education, healthcare, security, financial services, government-citizen interfaces and entertainment.

"We are confident that in coming years, Reliance's digital services would fundamentally change the lives of hundreds of millions of ordinary Indians," he added.

Infotel Broadband, a subsidiary of Reliance Industries, had won a 20 Mhz slot pan-India broadband wireless spectrum spectrum for Rs 12,847.71 crore (Rs 128.47 billion) in 2300 Mhz spectrum band and the company is conducting technology trials for rolling out services.

Ambani said Reliance has a unique green-field opportunity to create a state-of-the art digital services platform, without being constrained by any legacy issues.

"Our vision is to help develop the hard, soft and social infrastructure needed to create an integrated digital services business model," he added.

The group is present in energy and retail sectors, while it has big plans for telecom and finance sectors.
