Mukesh Ambani owned Reliance Industries is working hard to get 4G started in India. Reliance has a pan India license for 4G and has recently partnered with Airtel for sharing of infrastructure.
4G was expected to be launched by 2013 but there has certainly been a delay. The delay is mainly because Reliance haven’t yet got enough tie ups for its new technology. At the present moment very limited people in the country use 4G devices.
Reliance Jio Infocomm gave a little preview of it’s 4G technology at the ITT Tech Fest. The downloading speeds varied between 18MBPS to 48MBPS while the average upload speeds were 9MBPS.
Reliance Jio Infocomm also previewed some other services like Jio Play and Jio Mags.
- It is a Live Tv service
- Jio Play will have a total of 160 channels including 16 HD channels.
- Video on Demand will have around 400 movies.
- You can also catch up a previous day tv program upto 7 days back.
Jio Mifi Devices
Reliance Jio is also working on Wifi-Mifi devices so that customers can use 4G on wifi enabled devices.
Jio Mags is a e-magazine service provided by the company.
Jio Drive is a 100GB cloud storage service that will be provided by Reliance.
There is no official word on the launch date. The 4G services are expected to be rolled out by mid 2014.
