On Saturday, Reliance Jio announced that it is introducing 5G-powered Wi-Fi network services in Nathdwara, Rajasthan. Now, is it like a traditional mobile 5G network? No, it is not. The backhaul of the Wi-Fi network would be 5G, but it is not a 5G mobile network that you would be receiving in your devices, but a Wi-Fi network that is powered by 5G. So yes, you can expect great data speeds from the Wi-Fi. But there could be congestion scenarios as well since the Wi-Fi networks would be available for the public at mass and in high-footfall areas. Let's take a look at all the important questions around Jio's 5G powered Wi-Fi network.
