India’s one of the leading telecom service provider Reliance Jio has announced the rollout of its 5G services on 26 GHz mmWave spectrum across all 22 telecom circles. According to the telco, it has now completed its minimum rollout obligations in all 22 licensed service areas (LSAs) and across each spectrum band ahead of time as per the terms of its spectrum allocation on August 17, 2022.

Reliance Jio had submitted the prescribed details towards completion of the Phase 1 minimum rollout obligation with the Department of Telecommunications (DoT) on July 19, 2023, and DoT completed all the necessary testing by August 11, 2023.

“Honouring our commitment to the Government of India, the Department of Telecommunications, and the 1.4 billion Indians towards the accelerated rollout of high-quality 5G services, we are proud to announce that we have taken India to the leadership position globally in speed of rollout of 5G services. We have of course also completed minimum rollout obligations for the 5G spectrum allocated to us. Since receiving the 5G spectrum in August last year, our team has been working round the clock to ensure we keep up the pace of 5G rollout that we had promised to enable pan-India 5G coverage by the end of this year. This is one of the fastest 5G rollouts of this scale globally and gives India a prominent position on the global 5G map,” said Akash Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited.

“The benefits of 5G mmWave include extremely high bandwidth and low latency. This can give enterprises looking to deploy emerging and innovative applications faster speeds and less delay than previous wireless networking technologies. mmWave business solutions will expand the market for leased lines by providing equally dependable fixed-wireless services, thereby digitizing millions of small and medium enterprises with enterprise-grade connectivity and business solutions. This spectrum is capable of providing ultra-high-speed broadband of up to 2 Gbps,” he added.

For the unaware, Jio had acquired low-band, mid-band, and mmWave spectrum in India, which includes 700MHz, 800MHz, 1800MHz, 3300MHz, and 26GHz bands for a total price of Rs. 88,078 crores. Moreover, Jio has the highest spectrum holding in the country, including the 1000MHz in the millimeter wave band (26 GHz) in all 22 LSAs, which provides unique enterprise use cases and high-quality streaming services.

Further, Jio says its engineers have worked round the clock to ensure the fastest deployment of Jio True 5G networks in India, making it the fastest 5G rollout at this scale in the world. The company believes that the mmWave spectrum with the standalone deployment of Jio True 5G services will provide a critical advantage for delivering 5G-based business connectivity solutions that will address the millions of small, medium, and large enterprises.

Mukesh Ambani’s plans to build home-grown 5G network solution is based on an open source telecom platform called Open RAN. This network platform, similar to how open source software became a game changer in the 1990s, attempts to build telecom radio and base stations using non-proprietary technology. It will help bring down costs drastically compared to buying proprietary gear from the likes of Nokia and Ericsson.
