We were the world's largest mobile data network last year and the gap from the others has only widened in the last 12 months. Voice usage on the network has grown from 2.50 billion minutes per day to more than 5.30 billion minutes per day. The amount of video consumption has grown from 1.65 billion  hours per month to more than 3.40 billion hours per month. We are on track towards achieving our target of 99% population coverage with 4G-LTE.

But even after serving the needs of our 215+ million  customers, the capacity utilization of the Jio network is less than 20 %.
