 “I believe that 4G coverage in India will become larger than 2G network coverage in next 12 months,” said Reliance Industries Limited chairman Mukesh Ambani on Wednesday.

Speaking at the India Mobile Congress, Ambani said that India has leapfrogged the mobile broadband penetration to become world’s largest mobile data consuming nation in just last one year. “The pace of growth in Indian telecom industry is unparalleled in the world,” he said.
 
Ambani said that in the next 10 years, “I believe that the Indian economy will grow from present $2.5 trillion to $7 trillion. And IT and telecom has to play a foundational role creating the digital infrastructure.”
 
“As a nation we missed the first three industrial revolutions. The fourth industrial revolution is fuelled by connectivity, data and AI. India now has the opportunity to lead the fourth revolution, which has brought more dramatic transformations globally than the three revolutions,” he said. 
Stressing that data is the oxygen of the digital economy, he said: “We can't deprive Indians of life sustaining resource.” 
 
“We have to provide ubiquitous high speed data at affordable prices and at the same time ensure that they also have access to affordable smart phones that connects them with knowledge and limitless power of Internet.
 
“If we give the country's youth right tools and ecosystem, they will transform India. You will be a nation of a million start-ups.”
 
He observed that India's economy is overflowing with data. “All of us have worked to create a robust digital circulatory system to carry data of each of 1.3 billion Indians including those living in remotest villages,” he added.
