"We'll be ready to launch in the second half of 2016 – 80 percent of India's population will have high-speed, mobile broadband internet," Ambani said in an interview to a private news channel.

"Eighty percent of the 1.3 billion Indians will have high-speed mobile internet (this year). By 2017, we will cover 90 percent. And by 2018, all of India will be covered by this digital infrastructure," he said.

Reliance Jio's 4G services are currently available to roughly 120,000 employees, their families and business partners. The company has invested nearly USD 15 billion in the telecom venture.

On the company's investment in acquiring airwaves and laying the physical infrastructure for offering high-speed internet services, Ambani said he believed that the world is at the beginning of the information and digital age.

Ambani also said that digitisation will be at the forefront of the digital revolution and India cannot be left behind.
