from Reliance Jio is “likely” to help the company add 100 million more subscribers and take its revenue market share to 10 per cent by 2018 and help reverse the falling industry revenue trend says a report “Reliance Jio’s plan to introduce a cheap 4G handset from September will accelerate Internet adoption and should help reverse the recent decline in telcos’ revenue” Fitch said in a note today “The cheap handset would add 3-4 per cent (or around USD 950 million) to annual industry revenue if adopted by at least 100 million subscribers which appears likely” the report said RIL chairman Mukesh Ambani had last weekend told shareholders that the company would introduce handsets with an “effective” price of Re 0 where the customers will have to pay a refundable deposit of Rs 1500 to get a smartphone with an 4G connection Fitch said the handset will attract first-time 4G users and help Jio gain revenue market share Jio handset is likely to quickly replace 2G handsets in rural areas where smartphones had previously been out of reach for many potential customers it said adding the country’s Internet-adoption rate is among lowest in Asia-Pacific on high prices and a lack of fixed-broadband networks in rural areas The agency said the industry revenue declined 156 per cent on a year-on-year basis to USD 61 billion for the March 2017 quarter and added that the monthly tariff of Rs 153 is 50 per cent above the current average revenue per rural user which should help industry revenue “Jio is likely to boost its revenue market share from 3-4 per cent to over 10 per cent in 2018 We expect most of this increase to come from new revenue generated by the expansion of the 4G market” it said The monthly tariff will impact revenue market share of incumbents such as Bharti Airtel but the older companies can also benefit through this as Jio’s moves can help raise data usage and average spending across the market Despite this move the agency retained its negative outlook on the sector which has been impacted hugely by the entry of Jio “Jio is likely to roll out other offers to increase its subscriber base over the next two years and incumbents are likely to continue to respond with price cuts discounts and promotions of their own” the report said adding Jio’s revenue market share is lower on aggressive pricing For all the latest Technology News download

New Horizons spacecraft Top News Scientists have unveiled the origin of the large heart-shaped nitrogen glacier on Pluto spotted by NASA’s New Horizons spacecraft during its historic flyby ofthe icy-dwarf planet last year Researchers from the Laboratoire de meteorologiedynamique in France show that Pluto’s peculiar insolation and atmosphere favour nitrogen condensation near the equator in the lower altitude regions leading to an accumulation of ice at the bottom of Sputnik Planum a vast topographic basin Through their simulations they also explain the surface distribution and atmospheric abundance of other types of volatiles observed on Pluto Among the types of ice covering Pluto’s surface nitrogen is the most volatile: when it sublimes (at minus 235 degrees Celsius) it forms a thin atmosphere in equilibrium with the ice reservoir at the surface One of the most unexpected observations from New Horizons which flew by Pluto in July last year showed that this reservoir of solid nitrogen is extremely massive and mostly contained in “Sputnik Planum” a topographic basin located within the tropics of Pluto researchers said Methane frost also appears all over the northern hemisphere except at the equator while carbon monoxide ice in smaller amounts was only detected in Sputnik Planum Until now the distribution of Pluto’s ice remained unexplained To better understand the physical processes at work onPluto the researchers developed a numerical thermal model of the surface of the dwarf planet able to simulate the nitrogen methane and carbon monoxide cycles over thousands of years and compared the results with the observations made by the New Horizons spacecraft Their model shows that the solid-gas equilibrium of nitrogen is responsible for trapping ice in Sputnik Planum At the bottom of the basin the pressure of the atmosphere – and therefore of gaseous nitrogen – increases and the corresponding frost temperature is higher than outside the basin allowing nitrogen to preferably condense into ice Simulations show that the nitrogen ice inevitably accumulates in the basin thus forming a permanent nitrogen reservoir as observed by New Horizons The numerical simulations also describe the methane and carbon monoxide cycles Because of its volatility similar to that of nitrogen carbon monoxide ice is entirely sequestered with nitrogen in the basin in keeping with the New Horizons measurements Regarding the methane ice its lower volatility at the temperatures prevailing on Pluto allows it to exist elsewhere than in the Sputnik Planum glacier The model shows that pure methane ice seasonally covers both hemispheres in agreement with New Horizons data This scenario shows that there is no need for an internal reservoir of nitrogen ice to explain the formation of the Sputnik Planum glacier as suggested by previous studies The research was published in the journal Nature For all the latest Technology News download Indian Express App More Top

it as hassle free as possible Talking to the indianexpresscom Ahad Arshad co-founder of the company revealed their plans and ways and how it’s all going to change the delivery experience reducing time by at least one-third “It was due to the delay in order delivery that we were forced to think of delivering food in other ways The traffic has gone from bad to worse due to the metro construction although it will be helpful in future currently there are a lot of traffic issues” Arshad said in an email interview Arshad along with his co-partner Mohd Bilal procured two drones from China to start their project However they met with a few challenges “We did a few trial runs on our location but it was not successful in the beginning so we made a few modifications like increasing the lifting capacity of the drones and much more” he revealed “A few days back we attached a box (with eatables) with the help of a pulley under the drone as soon as the box will touch the ground the box will detach from the drone leaving it for the person ordering the food” The ambitious project will be operational only after it receives a nod from the government of India They had already written a letter to the District Magistrate of Lucknow to allow them to run some trials with the drone “The Civil Aviation Ministry is also in favour of drone delivery but it is also waiting for a nod from the GOI”
