Tata Communications


From the tiny electromagnetic coil of the first telephone in 1876 to the fibre-optic network that circles the globe today, technology has not only revolutionized the way we communicate – it has transformed our world and the way we live.

The Internet,some say, is ubiquitous. Some call it a digital age. We call it the New World of Communications™.

Through our global network, the world’s largest, we’re proud to play a major role in the emergence of this new world. The TaTa Communications reaches more than 240 countries and territories, 99.7% of the world’s GDP, millions of businesses, and billions of people. And it includes:
