Mumbai,  August 16, 2023: Reliance Jio Infocomm  has announced that it has completed its minimum roll-out obligations in each of the 22 Licensed Service Areas (“LSA”), across each of the spectrum bands, ahead of time under the terms of the spectrum allocated to it on  August 17  2022.
On  July 19  2023, RJIL had completed submission of the prescribed details towards completion of the Phase 1 minimum roll-out obligation with the Department of Telecommunications (“DoT") Units and by 11th August 2023, necessary DoT testing was completed in all circles.
Jio had acquired a unique combination of low-band, mid-band and mmWave spectrum, which coupled with its deep fibre network and indigenous technology platforms, will enable Jio to provide 5G Everywhere and 5G For All (consumers and enterprises).
 Jio also has 1,000 MHz in the millimetre wave band (26 GHz) in each of the 22 circles which will uniquely enable enterprise use cases as well as provide high-quality streaming services.|
Jio engineers have worked round the clock to ensure the fastest rollout of its True 5G network, making it the fastest 5G rollout of this scale in the world.
Jio believes that the mmWave spectrum with the additional layer of Jio’s True-5G benefits due to StandAlone deployment, is a critical differentiator enabling it to provide 5G-based business-connectivity solution that will address millions of small, medium and large enterprises.
Says Akash Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio: “The benefits of 5G mmWave include extremely high bandwidth and low latency. This can give enterprises looking to deploy emerging and innovative applications faster speeds and less delay than previous wireless networking technologies. mmWave business solutions will expand the market for leased lines by providing equally dependable fixed-wireless services, thereby digitizing millions of small and medium enterprises with enterprise-grade connectivity and business solutions. This spectrum is capable of providing ultra-high-speed broadband of upto 2 Gbps.”
