Tata Communications reaches 10 yrs of privatization

Staff writer

Tata Communications celebrated its 10th anniversary of a unique public-private partnership that led to the creation of a truly global player in the communications services space.

During this decade, the company transformed from an India-centric, international voice monopoly to a globally recognized, trans-national service provider. This shift is the result of visionary leadership of the Tata group, coupled with the trust of our various stakeholders, including the government of India that continues to own 26% equity stake in Tata Communications. 

Significant growth has resulted in Tata Communications employing 7,800 people, almost double the number from 10 years ago. This diversity is further reflected in its global leadership team with executives in 14 cities across nine countries. 

Tata Communications has significant investments in acquiring and building network and data centre infrastructure, technology and service capabilities and entering new markets. The Tata Global Network includes submarine cable capacity that connects six continents, a Tier-1 internet backbone and over 300 points of presence worldwide.
