Google has announced its intentions to invest up to $1 billion in India’s second-largest mobile network company, Bharti Airtel, as part of its Google for India Digitization Fund. The internet giant is set to acquire a 1.28% share in the telecommunication company as part of the investment.

Google’s contribution will include a $700 million share investment and up to $300 million commercial agreements. The pair said that the funding will help widen Airtel’s offerings and speed up access and digital inclusion across India’s network. “Airtel is a leading pioneer shaping India’s digital future, and we are proud to partner on a shared vision for expanding connectivity and ensuring equitable access to the Internet for more Indians,” said Sundar Pichai, CEO of Google and Alphabet. Both companies also aim to strengthen India’s cloud network. Since 2004, Google has been a part of India’s digitalization path when it previously built offices in Hyderabad and Bangalore. “Google’s efforts in India have deepened our knowledge of how technology can be useful to all different types of people,” Pichai wrote in a blog post about the partnership’s internal impact. He added that initially teaming up with India has helped them to create better products for users worldwide.
