Reliance Jio is different from Reliance Communication As Reliance Jio is owned by Mukesh Ambani. RJio will be better only for 4G Likers or waiters But it will quit different from 2G & 3G, No GSM mobile will suit for LTE4G Sim You will need to purchase a handset.. Like IPHONE5sorc A COSTLY HANDSET I am thinking that 3G itself not in power…. Like 3G Speed is 21.1 MBPS, but network operators provides only 2 to 3mbps How 4G (100MBPS)! So, Please….. First bring the power of 3G & then go for 4G As Tower Radiations increases…… Our Survival will… Read more »

These agreements would ensure excellent coverage from Day 1 unlike other new operators.

looks like there are making SOLID background for launch of 4G services, so that customers never make any compliant about quality of service.

A perfect home work!

Indicating towards grand launch of BWA in coming days. I liked the strategy RJio is following to have agreements in advance then launching services in some cities and then finding for other circles.
