Jio Platforms Ltd and SES, a leading global satellite-based content connectivity solutions provider, have announced a joint venture – Jio Space Technology Limited. The joint venture will deliver next-generation scalable and affordable broadband services in India using satellite technology.

While we continue to expand our fibre-based connectivity and FTTH business and invest in 5G, this new joint venture with SES will further accelerate the growth of multigigabit broadband. With additional coverage and capacity offered by satellite communications services, Jio will be able to connect the remotest towns and villages, enterprises, government establishments, and consumers to the new Digital India. We are excited about this new journey combining our massive reach and customer base with SES’s innovative leadership and expertise in the satellite industry, said Akash Ambani, Director of Jio.
