Jio has recently announced its plan to launch 5G in India. You can participate in a Free 5G trial and enjoy unlimited speed up to 1 GBPS. Let’s talk about what are the criteria and how to use Jio 5G on your smartphone devices.
There are presently 5G services available in Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi-NCR, Varanasi, Chennai, Bengaluru, Nathdwara, and Hyderabad. The 5G services from telecom giant Reliance Jio will soon be available in additional Indian locations. All thanks to the Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance business. Notably, because the Jio 5G service is still in beta, only a select group of people or participants may use it.
It’s interesting to note that the telecom giant is providing free 5G services to a small group of subscribers in India. Jio launched a Welcome 5G Offer to connect selected qualified subscribers and provide them free access to the most recent 5G connection.
Users must have a smartphone that is compatible with the Jio 5G network Bandwidths, they must be present in the Jio 5G coverage region, and most importantly, they must be using an active Jio valid plan that costs Rs 239 or more for a prepaid and all postpaid services in order to enjoy the Jio welcome 5G.
Under the exclusive 5G deal, Jio offers its clients unlimited 5G internet at speeds of up to 1 Gbps. The Jio Welcome deal reportedly depends on an invitation, and not all users would be eligible to get this invitation.
How to participate in Jio 5G trial?
Customers must register their number with Jio in order to obtain an invitation to access its 5G network. Jio will determine if a particular customer is qualified to utilise Jio True 5G after registering the number.
Customers must, however, fulfil some requirements for eligibility even before registering for the invitation. According to Jio’s official website, consumers must have a Jio 5G-compatible smartphone and remain in a location with network coverage to qualify for the invitation. In addition, Jio customers must have an active prepaid or postpaid plan that is Rs 239 or higher in order to receive an invitation from the company.
Jio 5G supported Smartphones
To make their smartphones compatible with Jio 5G, a number of smartphone manufacturers, including Samsung, Oppo, Vivo, OnePlus, Realme, and Nothing, have already released system upgrades. Other phone manufacturers are anticipated to provide their OTA updates for 5G connections by the end of this year, although they have not yet done so.
The 5G upgrade for iPhones is anticipated to be released by Apple in December. The Cupertino behemoth has already released its iOS 16.2 beta, which is exclusively accessible to a small number of people, and it includes 5G compatibility.
How to activate Jio 5G on Smartphone?
To turn on Jio 5G on your phone. Do the following:
- Go to the settings on your phone.
- There is a mobile network option. Toggle it.
- If your phone has two SIM cards, choose the Jio SIM before selecting the “Preferred network type” option.
- Choose 5G here, and you’re done.
Be aware that even though your smartphone has 5G capability, it still requires software support in order to use the 5G network. Check to see if your 5G phone has the latest 5G software.
Jio claims that consumers would receive limitless 5G bandwidth at rates of up to 1 Gbps. Remember that the plans, tariffs, and pricing have not yet been released. That should be made public closer to the anticipated Diwali launch of the product, or even a little later depending on how the testing goes.
We’re presuming that throughout the trial time, 5G services would be provided at current 4G pricing, which translates to being free. This suggests that you might be able to keep utilising your current 4G plan while using 5G.
In order to give every client the greatest coverage and user experience, Jio claims it will continue to offer the beta trial until a city’s network coverage is “basically complete,” and further cities will be added to the list “progressively as cities keep getting ready.”
Jio provides a superior 5G testing experience because there is now no data cap on upload and download rates. In contrast to the Non-standalone (NSA) technology being used by other telecom companies, Jio is adopting the Standalone (SA) 5G technology, which makes the claim that it offers faster data transmission speeds and reduced latency.
For those who are unaware, SA 5G refers to an end-to-end 5G network where the base station and radio antenna are completely new designs that adhere to 5G requirements. Through software changes, the current 4G infrastructure is converted to 5G with NSA.
A software upgrade will be required for the majority of devices in order for them to enable SA 5G on Jio networks. Manufacturers have been known to distribute OTA updates for the same in some circumstances.
