Jio offering superior 4G LTE speeds, says Edelweiss Securities

By May 13th, 2016 AT 11:20 AM

Reliance Jio, which recently extended its services to public through an employee referral system, is offering much superior service when compared with incumbent players’ 4G services with indoor network speed of 3-8Mbps and outdoor speed of 15-20Mbps, which is about 25% higher than current operators, Edelweiss Securities said in a research report.


The firm availed Jio’s employee referral offer for testing, and it said that the first impression is positive owing sound network performance. “We consistently received network speed of 12-20Mbps outdoors and 3-8Mbps indoors with satisfactory coverage. The experience on voice side, with respect to voice quality and call set-up time, was also satisfactory,” it said.

Edelweiss however said that the superior performance can be attributed to RJIO’s relatively empty network and performance may deteriorate post commercial launch.

“There were few occasions when RJIO reported lower speeds and signal strengths versus incumbents, especially in indoor environs. With respect to building blocks, with pan-India 5MHz paired spectrum in 800MHz band and 20MHz unpaired spectrum in 2300MHz band, RJIO is better placed than incumbents with data spectrum holding in both coverage and capacity spectrum,” it added

Jio has already developed a unified digital ecosystem with a suite of applications. The firm however said, “there are credible established alternatives in each of the verticals. We remain cautious on the sector anticipating increase in competitive intensity with launch of RJIO.”

The company is offering a number of content-focused services through applications, which already come bundled with Lyf handsets, and can be accessed through various app store. These apps include Jio Play (live TV), JioOnDemand (VoD), JioMoney (wallet), and JioBeats (music).
