Jio True 5G has three advantages: a stand-alone 5G architecture with an advanced 5G network that is independent of the 4G network; the largest and best mix of 5G spectrum across the 700 MHz, 3500 MHz, and 26 GHz bands; and the seamless integration of these 5G frequencies into a single  robust "data highway" using an advanced technology called Carrier Aggregation.
