Reliance Jio to reportedly spend over Rs 1000 cr on commercial 4G launch next month

Reliance Jio will reportedly spend over Rs 1000 crores on commercial launch, which is likely sometime next month, Exchange4media reported Tuesday citing industry sources. The launch however will happen in phases with initial focus on metro or high ARPU cities.


Till date, the telco is providing services to over 1.5 lakhs group employees to get feedback around the quality of services. Reliance Jio will offer 4G services using the 2300 Mhz band, which it is possessing since 2010. It is deploying a Greenfield network in the country in partnership with Korean major Samsung. Besides, it s aiming to deploy over 1,50,000 small cells to address the indoor coverage challenge and to offer better call quality and data speed.

The telco, along with its 4G voice and data services, will launch a slew of content-based services, including music streaming, mobile TV, and video on demand among others. The move is aimed at differentiating the telco from the existing competition. The telco already holds 751.10 MHz of liberalised spectrum across the 800MHz, 1800MHz and 2300MHz bands.
