Amaravati: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy virtually launched 4G services to remote corner areas of the State from the Camp Office here on Thursday. The Chief Minister also formally launched the operations of 100 Jio towers established by the Reliance Group.

Interacting with the District Collectors, public representatives and officials through video conferencing enabled by the new towers, the Chief Minister said it would also help all houses in remote areas acquire internet connectivity. 

He thanked the Telecommunications Department at the Centre, BSNL, Reliance Jio and Airtel for extending the services to remote corners. 209 remote corner villages would receive the 4G services, he said, observing that Government services would now be implemented with more quality and perfection. 

Reliance has established 85 towers in Alluri Sitaramaraju district, 10 in Parvatipuram Manyam district, 3 in Annamayya district and 2 in YSR district. These towers would soon be upgraded to 5G. 

As part of the efforts to take the broadband services to every nook and corner of the State, Government has tied up with the Universal Service Obligation Fund to establish the towers in collaboration with Reliance Group. Under the programme, mobile cell towers would be established in 2,849 places out of which Government has already handed over land for establishing towers at 2,463 places. By December, the towers would be established at all these places.  

Government, coordinating with the Centre and other agencies, has provided all facilities to the Reliance Industries in establishing these towers aiming at extending 4G services to 5,459 houses in remote areas which do not have the mobile facility. These towers would help internet users download data at 150 MPBS and upload it with 50 MPBS speed. 

Village Secretariats, RBKs, village clinics and schools also will acquire broadband services, the Chief Minister said, adding that implementation of welfare schemes, e-learning, health services, e-crop booking and distribution of ration would also become easier now.
