Reliance Jio Infocomm, the telecoms division of Indian conglomerate Reliance Industries, says it has been awarded a Facilities Based Operator (FBO) licence by the Infocomm Development Authority (IDA) of Singapore, allowing it to offer internet and voice roaming services in the city-state. In a statement, the unit confirmed the licence award, noting it will now be able to ‘buy, operate and sell undersea and/or terrestrial fibre connectivity, set up its internet point of presence, offer internet transit and peering services as well as data and voice roaming services in Singapore.’ Prior to the FBO licence award, Reliance Jio Infocomm has been actively building its capacity to support the launch of telecoms services on its international network. In April this year, working alongside Telekom Malaysia, Vodafone Group, Omantel (Oman), Etisalat (UAE) and Sri Lanka’s Dialog Axiata, the Indian group inked a construction and maintenance deal, and supply contract for the Bay Of Bengal Gateway submarine cable system, which will connect South East Asia, South Asia and the Middle East as well as Europe, Africa and Far East Asia.
