Telecom operator Reliance Communications from next week onwards will start offering 4G service using Reliance Jio network to its CDMA customers in select circles at a starting price of Rs. 93 per 10 gigabytes.
“RCom has written to the Department of Telecom, informing (the department) that it will be using Reliance Jio Infocomm 4G network to provide 4G data service to its CDMA customers from next week. Only those CDMA customers who opted for the upgrade will get the service,” an official source told PTI.
RCom will provide 10 GB of 4G data at the starting price of Rs. 93, which is sharply lower by about 94% than that of its competitors offering 4G service. In most circles, the rates will vary between Rs. 93 and Rs. 97 per 10 GB, as per the rate published on the RCom website.
According to the letter to DoT, RCom will launch 4G data service in 12 circles – Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Punjab, UP East and West, Odisha, Madhya Pradesh and Bihar. By mid-July, the company will expand service to six more circles – Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Rajasthan – but only after DoT’s approval.
The company has plans to offer 4G service using Reliance Jio data network on a pan-India basis by mid-August.
Currently, Reliance Jio’s service is only available as a CDMA that comes bundled with the LYF Smartphones available at Reliance digital stores only.
Measuring the speed of data connection of Reliance Jio 4G in comparison to Airtel 4G, the results were astonishing, as reliance 4G was much faster than the airtel 4G. Considering the price of Data Packs the reliance is one of the best data operator. See the geekyranjit’s test of speed test of reliance 4g and airtel 4g.
