Reliance Jio Infocomm (RJio), a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Ltd (RIL), has emerged as the world’s largest telecom service provider in terms of users, with its subscriber base reaching 340 million.

Terming RJio as the “world’s fastest growing digital services company,” RIL Chairman Mukesh Ambani said the company’s subscriber base has reached 340 million.
