Infotel Broadband plans to come out with ‘MiFi’ devices to provide users access to 4G

December 04, 2012

Reliance Industries Limited-owned Infotel Broadband (RIL) is planning to introduce ‘MiFi’ devices, says news reports.

MiFi devices will allow smartphone and tablet users to access high speed internet on the go from their existing devices. Currently, there is only one smartphone available in the market that runs on the 2300 MHz band, the frequency on which 4G services are offered in the country. MiFi, a tiny, battery-operated, wireless device, could bridge this shortage of handsets by converting 4G signals into Wi-Fi.

These devices will aid quick uptake of the RIL-owned Infotel Broadband’s internet services. The company plans to roll out its 4G services in mid-2013. The company is expected to first roll out 4G services in Delhi and Mumbai.

RIL has entered into contracts with Ericsson and Samsung for building optic-fibre network. The company has also partnered with Microsoft and IBM for providing security solutions and IT integration, respectively.
