Mumbai, Jio is launching its True 5G network at a very fast pace. Today Jio achieved a major milestone by extending its True-5G coverage to 33 district headquarters in Gujarat, making Gujarat the first state in India to have Jio True 5G coverage across 100% of all district headquarters.
Gujarat holds a special place as it is the birthplace of Reliance. This strategic announcement is dedicated to Gujarat and its people. As a model state, Jio will launch a series of True 5G-powered campaigns in the education, healthcare, agriculture, Industry 4.0 and IOT sectors in Gujarat and then expand it across the country.
This auspicious start in Gujarat will be accompanied by an important true 5G-driven initiative ‘Education-for-All’, in which Reliance Foundation and Jio are coming together to initially digitize 100 schools in Gujarat. This initiative will equip schools with facilities such as:
1. JioTrue 5G connectivity
2. Advanced Content Platform
3. Platform for interaction between teacher and students
4. School Management Platform
Through the power of this technology, millions of students across the country will have a unique facility in the digital journey of empowerment through quality education.
Shri Akash M. Chairman of Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited. Ambani said, “We are proud to inform you that Gujarat is now the first state to have 100% of its district headquarters connected to our robust True 5G network. We want to show the real power of this technology and how it can impact the lives of a billion people.
Education occupies an important place in the focus area of our Prime Minister. Imagine the power of 300-400 million skilled Indians joining the workforce in the next 10-15 years. It will help every Indian to improve their standard of living as well as realize our Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of becoming a developed economy by the year 2047.
Reliance Foundation already runs a program called Education and Sports for All (ESA), where it empowers and empowers youth at the grassroots level while creating opportunities in quality education and sports. Jio and Reliance Foundation will take the ‘Education for All’ campaign to a new level and digitize schools with platforms using powerful 5G-technology and bring them at par with the best in India and the world.
5G will no longer be a privilege for the few or an exclusive service available in our big cities. It should be available to every citizen, every household and every business across India. Only then will we be able to dramatically increase productivity, earnings and living standards across our economy, creating a prosperous and inclusive society in our country. This is our consistent belief, also inspired by our We Care philosophy.”
Starting November 25th, Jio customers in Gujarat will be invited to the Jio Welcome Offer to experience unlimited data at speeds of up to 1 Gbps+ at no extra cost.
Jio True 5G has a three-fold advantage that makes it the only true 5G network in India:
1. Standalone 5G architecture with advanced 5G network without any dependency on 4G network
2. Largest and best combination of 5G spectrum in 700 MHz, 3500 MHz and 26 GHz bands
3. Carrier aggregation that combines 5G frequencies into a single robust “data highway” using an advanced technology called carrier aggregation.
