Reliance Jio has launched 5G-enabled Wi-Fi service in Rajasthan’s temple town of Nathdwara and will be expanded to other public places such as railway stations and educational institutions, the company said on Saturday.
Jio has also started 5G services in Chennai. The company has extended the Jio Welcome offer in the city. Under the offer, invite-only customers will get access to 5G service during beta testing and will be able to access unlimited 5G data at up to 1 gigabit per second.
“Today, we have rolled out the first True5G-enabled Wi-Fi service in the holy city of Nathdwara and the temple of Lord Shrinathji. With this, we will power many more such places and allow them to test our services. Also Akash M Ambani, Chairman, Reliance Jio, said in a statement, “We welcome Chennai as our latest city to join the Jio True5G welcome offer.
The company said it is launching “JioTrue5G-powered Wi-Fi services” in high footfall areas such as educational institutions, religious places, railway stations, bus stands, commercial centers and other places.
Reliance Jio plans to cover the entire country with 5G services by December 2023 and has also launched 5G-enabled Wi-Fi services.
“As stated earlier, 5G may no longer be an exclusive service to the privileged few or people in our largest cities. It should be available to every citizen, every household and every business across India. It should be in that direction. A step in what every Indian enables. With JioTrue5G,” Akash Ambani said.
