With a “free welcome offer” beginning at Dussehra, India’s largest telecom provider, Reliance Jio, has announced that it will launch 5G services in India. On the joyous occasion of Dussehra, Jio announced that the Beta trial of its True-5G services would begin in four cities: Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, and Varanasi.
Customers will be invited to experience Jio’s 5G services via the company’s Jio True 5G Welcome Offer, which promises them limitless 5G internet at speeds of up to 1 gigabit per second.
“Invited clients will be able to test out True-5G services through Welcome Offer and provide feedback on the quality of the service and the overall user experience. Jio is customer-centric, therefore the company values hearing from its users to improve the quality of service it provides “a statement from the firm said.
In addition, “invited ‘Jio Welcome Offer’ consumers will be instantly upgraded to the Jio True 5G service without the need to change their existing Jio SIM or 5G handset,” the statement said.
Jio has promised that the invited consumers will not be charged extra for 5G data during the trial period and that they will only be required to pay for their regular 4G plan.
Until “network coverage of a city is substantially complete to provide the best coverage and user experience for every client,” it stated, users, will continue to take advantage of the Beta test. It was also noted that the rollout of the 5G service to further cities will occur gradually.
Akash M. Ambani, Chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm, commented on the launch, saying: “We can’t allow 5G to be a luxury service only for the wealthy or for people in major cities. It is essential that all Indians have access to it, in their homes and places of work.
If we want to build a rich and equitable society for all Americans, we need to drastically boost productivity, wages, and living standards across the board.”
Jio has stated that it is collaborating with all handset manufacturers to ensure that their 5G handsets are compatible with Jio True 5G services.
Last week, Airtel began offering 5G services in a few locations, making India one of only a handful of countries (along with the United States, South Korea, the United Kingdom, Japan, China, and other European countries) to do so.
It is predicted that 5G technology will provide download speeds ten times faster than 4G and up to three times more efficient use of the radio spectrum. India has begun rolling out 5G services in a few major cities, with nationwide availability expected within the next several years.
Ashwini Vaishnaw, the minister of communications, has announced that the government will roll out 5G service to 200 cities over the next six months. Vaishnav stated that while 200 cities were initially planned to be included, the current rate of progress meant that 600 cities will be included within the following six months.
Will Existing SIM Work in 5G?
According to Airtel, your current SIM card will continue to function in your 5G phone. “If you have an Airtel SIM card, you can immediately begin using 5G. Which means there won’t be any hitches with your 5G smartphone.” However, the business has stressed again that 5G phones are required for subscribers to use the 5G network.
Jio has now confirmed that their existing SIM card is compatible with 5G phones.
