Reliance Jio Infocomm’s user base has reportedly surpassed 24 million mark, and is growing swiftly with the addition of up to a million users per day, as the company aims for 100 million customer mark by March 2017. A Reliance Industries’ investor presentation also revealed that Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh were Reliance Jio’s top two telecom circles in subscriber terms with 1.5 million and 1.2 million users, respectively, as on September 30. Jio had recently said that it had a total of 16 million users at the end of September.


Tamil Nadu had 1.1 million users while Maharashtra, Karnataka, Rajasthan and Bihar telecom circles had a million subscribers each, followed by Madhya Pradesh, UP East and UP west with 0.9 million users as on September 30, the presentation data showed.

Jio has 4G coverage in 18,000 cities and over 2 lakh villages, covering over 70% of India’s population. It plans to extend the coverage to 90% of the population by next year, the company said.

Now Idea starts offering 2GB 4G/2G data at Rs.93/28 days in Karnataka.


4g/2g data…what happens when you latch to 3g n/w??? Complete nonsense.


Boom… set it to 4g only mode..


I don’t remember exactly but I guess I couldn’t connect to 3G network with this pack.


Pack itself means they dont have strong 4G presence, hence you will mostly latch onto 2G only


Well its can be accepted on the basis of slow connectivity speed @Hyderabad.


@Avengers its slow in Hyderabad but fast in Secunderabad. I dont know how/why but on the same device, with the same speed test (OOKLA and JIO SPEED TEST) it shows 1-2 Mbps in Hyderabad (Gachibowli) and 35-37 Mbps in Secunderabad (Secunderabad area).

Today I ran NetVelocity data coverage test for 15 kms and result was like 0.00 maximum and minimum. Now I contacted customer care and they are saying that they are aware of this issue and working to fix it.
