Reliance Jio 4G Service Is Now Live, But There Are A Few Things To Note

By 11:08 Thu, 05 Aug 2021 Comments


Reliance Jio has really been blowing up lately and understandably so. The company recently announced its plans to offer really competitive tariff plans in India, generally priced lower than the competition. Reliance's main concept seems to be to provide most basic services like voice calls and SMS, essentially for free and pamper users with additional bonuses, like a slew of smart apps, while only requiring payments for data. On the surface, this sounds like a remarkable approach to hold the ever-expanding India market by storm and for most users, this might turn out to be a hundred percent true. However, there are a few specifics we feel you must know in order to avoid an abrupt debarking off the hype train.


First of all, let's cover the basics. When we assumed Reliance Jio is launching a data-first 4G service, this is actually a quite literal description. The company's network only offers LTE service. That means that no fallbacks are present to 3G or 2G, eliminating the possibility to natively utilize an older device. Voice calls within the network will be done through VoLTE (which must be present on both sides of the conversation, otherwise additional charges do apply) and when you combine the aforementioned two conditions, you can quickly acquire an concept as to why there has been such a fuss about supported devices lately.

Now, we definitely see why finding if your current handset is supported is a major concern and we wish that there was an easy list or method we could quote. However, there are also a few other factors, like TDD and FDD LTE technologies and LTE Bands that come into play. From what we can gather, Reliance is keeping things as broad as possible, by using 1800 MHz, but the info is unclear on this point as well. That being said, there are at least a few devices that we can already confirm will work on the network with some certainty. Of course, the list also includes the company's own LYF branded devices.

Then there is the lengthier still list of partnering devices that had access to Reliance's Preview offer. Chances are that these meet the requirements for the main service as well, although we can't give any guarantees. Reliance seems to be offering a few workarounds to compatibility issue as well, although we are yet to receive any word on how well they perform. There is the JioFi (INR 1,999)– a 4G hotspot device that can connect to up to 10 devices over Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) and an additional one through Universal Serial Bus (USB) and relay the service.
