The i2i cable network connects India to Singapore and is wholly owned by Bharti, India's top mobile phone carrier.

Bharti and Reliance Jio Infocomm Ltd, unit of Mukesh Ambani-controlled Reliance Industries, will continue to build on this "strategic framework" and consider other mutual areas of cooperation and development, they said.

Earlier this month, Reliance Jio signed a deal worth 12 billion rupees ($221 million) to share Reliance Communications Ltd's fibre optic network to roll out its 4G services.
