Reliance Jio Infocomm, MTS, BT, Deutsche Telekom, Millicom, Orange, Rogers, TeliaSonera and TIM—have joined hands to build a new Partnering Operator Alliance that will allow partner businesses to more efficiently and quickly bring innovative products and services to customers around the world.


These telcos are aiming to reach a potential customer base of around one billion customers in more than 80 countries around the world with this collaboration. The Alliance focuses on exchanging best practices on how to bring partner propositions to the market, on joint efforts in partner scouting and will also exchange knowledge about upcoming trends and services amongst the group.

The Alliance is covering all relevant product categories within an operator’s business, mobile as well as fixed, B2C as well as B2B. As of today, the Alliance has established relationships with 30 innovative partner businesses including AirBnB, Celltick, Disconnect, Idoomoo, Magisto, Mojio and Spotify.

To this end, we have built the globally largest greenfield 4G and fiber network, as well as a suite of digital services enabling entertainment, cloud, payment, and much more. We invite the best partners to work with us to co-create a Digital India,” Rainer Deutschmann, Chief Product & Innovation Officer of JIO, said in the joint statement.

The joint forces of industry leaders create additional value for our customers and give us a chance to provide the latest innovations, best services, products and client experience. We are proud to represent Russia and CIS countries in the alliance and we are sure that it is wise to face global market challenges in an alliance of reliable partners from all over the world,” said Vasyl Latsanych, Chief Marketing Officer of MTS Group.

Jio will launch in March or not later than April so be patient. One of my friends works with Reliance and the info is from him. Near my house there is a new Jio tower and I talked to their engineers too. They are working overtime to install the radios on the tower which was put in place just a few weeks ago. This time there will be no delay. AVOID group is going to be hit very very hard as most people I talked to are waiting to shift to Jio.

No friend , Yesterday Jio had a meeting with its co – ordinates. As one of my friend is working with them. Mrs. Neeta Ambani will inaugrate the services. But it is very much sad to say, launch is being postponed to 6 months from now. I.e AUGUST 2016 will be their launch mnth. You will also get to know the same from your friend when his meeting will be held.
The delay is caused bcoz the number of towers they need to launch , has not been achieved.
