Reliance Jio launches 5G Fixed Wireless Area (FWA) to provide 5G Internet services in high footfall areas in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Varanasi. Areas such as educational institutions, religious places, commercial hubs, railway stations and bus stands would be covered by Jio’s 5G-based WiFi
"5G cannot remain an exclusive service to the privileged few or those in our largest cities. It must be available to every citizen, every home, and every business across India. This is a step in that direction to enable every Indian with JioTrue5G. Today, we have powered the first True5G-enabled Wi-Fi service at the holy town of Nathdwara and the temple of Lord Srinathji. With this, we will power many more such locations and allow them to trial our services. In addition, we welcome Chennai as our latest city to be added to Jio True5G Welcome Offer," Akash Ambani, Chairman of JIO said in a release.
He further said that the Jio True 5G pilot beta trail has also been extended to Chennai and Nathdwara, Rajasthan. This announcement is considered as the first major announcement as Jio's head after the RIL board appointed him chairman.
