Special Correspondent

SALEM: Reliance Communications has completed its network expansion rollout in Erode cluster including the districts of Salem, Dharmapuri, Krishnagiri and Namakkal for enhanced rural tele-density which will ensure next generation network of voice, data, media and internet to even the remotest areas in the region.

Area covered

Talking to the media here on Thursday, Ajay Awasthi, TN Circle Head of the company, pointed out that ’Reliance Total’ network now connects 78 towns, 20 taluks, 1830 villages with 64.2 per cent population in Salem areas of Erode cluster.

To improve the coverage and connectivity in rural pockets, high quality seamless and congestion-free all-IP next generation network infrastructure had been placed.

Quality connectivity

“Our wireless strategy will enable all, whether a village or a metro, to gain access to same quality of connectivity.

To back up the infrastructure, 2225 retail outlets and 150 distributors have been included in Salem and a slew of products including the exclusive `veetu phone’ (family phone) and other top-up options as value additions are on offer,” he said.
