Reliance Jio has said that it will phase in the rollout of its 5G network and service in Bengaluru and Hyderabad. The telecom behemoth started beta testing earlier this year in Delhi, Varanasi, Kolkata, Chennai, Nathdwara, and Mumbai.
Jio spent more than Rs 88,000 crore in August of this year to purchase spectrum in the 700 MHz, 800 MHz, 3300 MHz, and 26 GHz bands.
Details about In Bengaluru and Hyderabad, Reliance Jio rolls out 5G:
Additionally, only Reliance Jio will use standalone 5G architecture, which enables faster speeds and lower latency than non-standalone networks. The business added that it would back 5G Carrier Aggregation.
Select subscribers in Bengaluru & Hyderabad will be welcomed to the Jio Welcome offer, providing them with unlimited bandwidth at up to 1 Gbps without paying any additional costs, similar to how Jio rolled out 5G services in other locations.
Users won’t need to change or upgrade their current SIM card in order to utilize the 5G network, which is important to keep in mind. Additionally, not everyone will be able to use 5G immediately. In order to allow 5G on compatible devices, the network operator is now collaborating with smartphone manufacturers.
Jio has launched its 5G-powered WiFi services for individuals without 5G devices in addition to rolling out 5G in numerous cities for devices that enable it, with plans to expand the service in the upcoming months.
