reliance jio plans to make 5g affordable for india

Reliance Jio, the largest telecom provider in India, has been making significant progress towards the digital revolution. The company had earlier partnered with Qualcomm to produce its own indigenous 5G solutions. Radisys Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Jio Platforms Limited (JPL) and Jio and Qualcomm, now has developed a next-generation 5G solution with a virtualized Radio Access Network (vRAN).

Last year, the company had invested 97 million US Dollars in Jio platforms as well. Although, Qualcomm has also partnered with a local rival of Jio, namely Bharti Airtel. “India is at the forefront of the global digital revolution. Jio is accelerating the rollout of digital platforms and indigenously developed next-generation 5G stack, making it affordable and available everywhere,” said Reliance Jio in a statement.

Reliance Jio has further announced that Jio is accelerating the rollout of the next-generation indigenously developed 5G stack. The report further highlights the vision of Jio to keep India ahead of other nations in the ‘global digital revolution.’ Jio is already the largest operator in India with more than 426 million subscribers, and with the addition of more spectrum and 5G launch, it could easily surpass the 500 million mark.

Apart from this, the company has also collaborated with Google to manufacture low-cost 5G smartphones to further boosting its subscribers count. The company has its annual general meeting (AGM) scheduled for 24th June, and it may make several announcements regarding 5G and other devices as well.
