Jio 5G SA

Jio is deploying 5G SA, which would require smartphone manufacturers to release an OTA (over-the-air) update for their devices to enable them to connect with Jio's 5G. Many OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) have already started rolling out OTA updates with support for 5G SA. But still, there are many devices in the Indian ecosystem that don't support 5G SA. To ensure that you can consume Jio's 5G as and when available, make sure that it is updated to the latest firmware version.

Jio is deploying a mix of 700 MHz, 3500 MHz, and 26 GHz spectrum to deliver its 5G to customers. For consumers, the telco is likely only utilising the 700 MHz band and 3500 MHz band airwaves. The airwaves in the 26 GHz spectrum band is mostly going to be used for providing enterprise services. The 26 GHz band airwaves are premium mmWave (millimetre wavelength) airwaves, and while they can deliver a great bandwidth and capacity, they have very poor coverage.
