Jio, the 4G broadband network, introduced by Reliance Digital promises to alter the communication landscape in India. This all-IP network offers true 4G coverage across 18,000 cities in the country. And, it’s future proof – 5G and 6G ready. There is a mad rush to switch over to Jio. The reason for this is that Jio has gone all out to woo customers with freebies and extremely low tariff rates.
