Reliance Jio today announced the start of the beta trial of its 5G services for Jio users in 4 cities – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Varanasi from Dussehra. Jio’s 5G network is getting ready in these metros, with users set to get unlimited 5G data with speeds up to 1 Gbps+ speed.
Invited customers can trial the 5G services as part of Jio’s Welcome Offer and provide service and user-experience feedback. The beta trial for other cities will progressively be announced as cities prepare. The invited users can continue to avail of the beta trial until the network coverage of the city is substantially completed to provide the best coverage and user experience to every customer.
“Our Prime Minister has given a clarion call for accelerated roll-out of 5G across India to realize the full potential of a Digital India. In response, Jio has prepared an ambitious and the fastest ever 5G roll-out plan for a country of our size. India is leading the Digital revolution. Jio 5G will be True 5G, and we believe India deserves nothing less than TRUE-5G. Jio 5G will be the world’s most advanced 5G network, built for every Indian, by Indians. By embracing 5G, Jio will create nation-first platforms and solutions that will transform skill development, education, healthcare, agriculture, and many such sectors, with the promise of enabling a better life for every Indian. 5G cannot remain an exclusive service available to the privileged few or those in our largest cities. It must be available to every citizen, every home, and every business across India. Only then can we dramatically increase productivity, earnings, and living standards across our entire economy, thereby creating a prosperous and inclusive society in our country.”Mr. Akash M Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited
Invited ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ users will be automatically upgraded to the Jio True 5G service without needing to change their existing Jio SIM or 5G handset. The telco is also working with handset brands to enable their 5G handsets to work seamlessly with Jio True 5G services so that customers can choose from the most comprehensive range of 5G devices.
