    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

    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 bring down….
    If now a mans maximum lives upto 100YEARS …. After R.I. (4G) radiations a man will live only upto 50 to 70 YEARS!

    If U really care, try to avoid 4G Services & Let Reliance Jio to Close it very soon.

    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!

  • D JAISANKAR April 21, 2014 1:03 pm

    They yet to launch the services or they not even announce launch date…

  • Saurabh April 21, 2014 11:51 am

    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. Some might say that they are too slow at launch but in absence of an eco system whatever they have done before launch is just awesome. That is the way business should be done. Not like others who have licenses but no strategy to expand network. Better to have things in place in order to avoid no coverage at most of places problems like customers faced with Tata Docomo, Aircel, Videocon and Uninor.

    I was little bit skeptical before as outflow of funds are tremendous while in-flows yet to start once service is launched but in longer term 5-8 years whatever RJio is doing now gonna reap fruits for them. Corporate/Businessman always look at longer terms while a common man see shorter term benefits and go gung-ho for a service.

    Whoever say that they are very late in launching services. Tell me if they launched it with some circles and then you have said that it don’t have coverage at so and so places and blah blah blah. Better they ready network first then bring in customers.

      What you think will they tie up with BSNL also for tower sharing… What about the BSNL 3G in your town….

  • srikanth April 21, 2014 11:46 am

    fed up with agreement articles

  • Shiv April 21, 2014 11:29 am

    Gosh. They are tieing up with almost everyone…with this level of execution efficiency….I doubt whether the network quality of Jio would be any lesser than anyone…across the country.

    My belief is firming up now, about their reception quality to be good…

  • Jyothi April 21, 2014 11:24 am

    Too much agreement. I think Jio’s agreement with other will never end. And it will never lunch its services.

    • Lose May 24, 2014 3:04 pm

      Hello Madam,
      If U really think for future…. Let 4G be shutted….

      If U think… Im wrong than I will i bring up the remembrance

      1. Radiation from mobile towers is not only taking a toll on human health but is also blamed for sparrows vanishing into thin air.

      2. 2G itself is worst

      3. 3G into NO POWER

      4. HOW WILL BE 4G

      My Opinion is 4G Development is waste of money…..
      First Bring 3G into power……. To ALL the NETWORK OPERATORS

      Idea……Airtel……Aircel…..Reliance…….TATA etc…………………………………………
