There is no way without acknowledging the radical change in the concept of telecom service or mobile internet usage since Reliance Jio came on the market! In just 4-5 years, Jio has become the largest mobile network operator in the country. But customers are looking for better services from the country’s leading telecom company. At the moment most users have only one question in mind – when will Jio’s 5G service be launched!
Today, Reliance Jio chief Mukesh Ambani himself answered this widely asked question. At the India Mobile Congress 2020 event just hours ago, Reliance Industries Chairman and Managing Director Ambani said that Jio 5G network service will be launched in India in the second half of 2021, which is a success as part of the Government of India’s self-reliant India program. Will set the example.
Ambani is very confident that Jio will revolutionize 5G network and telecom services in India after its launch in the second half of 2021. He added that the network will be powered entirely by indigenous hardware and technology components and will be developed by indigenous technologists. He also told the meeting that affordable smartphones would be brought to the market for the common man.
Over the past few months, Jio has been working on 5G networks. The company is keen to launch the service ahead of its rival telecom operators. Already, they have applied to the government for permission to use spectrum and are working with tech giant Samsung and chipset maker Qualcomm to begin work on developing 5G networks.
At Reliance’s 43rd annual meeting in July, Mukesh Ambani announced that Geo would start testing 5G networks in the country as soon as spectrum is available. Then in October, at a conference hosted by Qualcomm, Geo unveiled its plans for the 5G network in detail and announced the development of the company’s 5G Radio Access Network (RAN). Let me tell you, RAN will help in scaling the next generation network.
In this context, Geo is a subsidiary of Reliance Industries which has received investments from various foreign companies in the last few months. The list of investors includes the names of the world’s largest companies such as Google, Facebook, Intel Capital, Qualcomm Ventures. At the moment, the company’s market share is more than 35 percent. As a result, the company’s Jio platforms will be able to improve further after the launch of the Jio 5G service – needless to say!
