Gujarat becomes the first state in India to get true-5G
Jio is rolling out its True 5G network at a rapid pace. Today, Jio has taken a big stride forward by extending its True-5G coverage in each of the 33 district headquarters of Gujarat, thereby making Gujarat the first state in India to get Jio True 5G coverage in 100% of the district headquarters.
Gujarat holds a special place, as it is Reliance’s Janmabhoomi. This strategic announcement is a dedication to Gujarat and its people. As a model state, Jio will launch a series of True 5G-powered initiatives across Education, Healthcare, Agriculture, Industry 4.0 and IOT sectors in Gujarat and then extend it across the country.
This shubh-aarambh in Gujarat will happen with an important True 5G-powered initiative named ‘Education-For-All’, in which Reliance Foundation and Jio are coming together to initially digitize 100 schools in Gujarat. This initiative will connect schools with:
- JioTrue5G connectivity
- Advanced Content Platform
- Teacher & Student Collaboration Platform
- School Management Platform
Through the power of this technology, millions of students across the country will be facilitated on a digital journey of empowerment through quality education.
Mr. Akash M Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited, said, “We are proud to share that Gujarat is now the first state to have 100% district headquarters connected with our robust True 5G network. We want to showcase the real power of this technology and how it can impact a billion lives.
Education is a focus-area for Our Hon’ble Prime Minister. Imagine the power of having 300-400 million skilled Indians joining the workforce in the next 10-15 years. It will not only give a better standard of living to each Indian but will also help in realizing our Hon’ble Prime Minister’s vision of becoming a developed economy by 2047.
Reliance Foundation already runs a program named Education & Sports for All (ESA), where it enables and empowers youth at the grass-root level with quality-education and opportunities in sports. Jio and Reliance Foundation will take the ‘Education for All’ initiative to a whole new level by using the powerful 5G-tech along with platforms that digitize the schools and bring them at par with the best in India and the world.
5G cannot remain an exclusive service available to the privileged few or those in our largest cities. It must be available to every citizen, every home, and every business across India. Only then can we dramatically increase productivity, earnings, and living standards across our entire economy, thereby creating a prosperous and inclusive society in our country. This is our constant belief, inspired by our We Care philosophy.”
Starting 25th November, Jio users in Gujarat will be invited to the Jio Welcome Offer, to experience Unlimited Data at up to 1 Gbps+ speeds, at no additional cost.
Jio True 5G has a three-fold advantage that makes it the only TRUE 5G network in India:
- Stand-alone 5G architecture with advanced 5G network with Zero dependency on 4G network
- The largest and best mix of 5G spectrum across 700 MHz, 3500 MHz, and 26 GHz bands
- Carrier Aggregation that seamlessly combines these 5G frequencies into a single robust “data highway” using an advanced technology called Carrier Aggregation
