Reliance Jio 4G: Commercial launch in August

Gadgets: Reliance Jio Infocomm’s 4G services could launch on August 15, and the first plan will be called Freedom with free voice services bundled with data, says a report on Economic Times.

The Economic Times report quotes people familiar with its plans, and says the data plans will be cheaper compared to what rivals offer currently. In April this year, Reliance Jio’s soft launch took place with the service being rolled out to employees.

Reliance Lyf, which is the smartphone brand of the company, is already in the top five when it comes to smartphone vendors in India.

Recently, price-cuts were announced on budget Lyf phones, with the cheapest 4G-VoLTE ready phones retailing at Rs 2,999.

The big advantage with these phones is customers can get a Reliance Jio with three months of data service free.

Reliance Jio holds a pan-India license in the 4G spectrum, and will be offering only 4G LTE connectivity; it won’t have 3G or 2G services like other telecom players.

Reliance’s total investment is nearly Rs 34,000 crores in this venture, and the pilot launch has already seen 70 lakh users download 13 million GB of data at an average of 19.2 GB per user, according to company data.
