Resilient network performance at a large scale

- Jio has witnessed more than 3x increase in voice and data traffic on its network, over the past two years. However, with >750K eNodeBs (across 800MHz/ 1800MHz/ 2300MHz bands) deployed on 4G-LTE, Jio continues to be by far the industry leader in terms of network capacity and performance (average download speed of 21.3 Mbps during August 2019, as per TRAI).

- World's largest VoLTE network continues to get bigger with ~52% YoY growth in daily voice traffic and is extending its lead over legacy 2G/3G voice networks in India.

- Besides higher capacity on account on larger deployment of spectrum on 4G technology, extensive fiber backhaul supports higher throughput and better customer experience.

- We have received strong interest across the 1,600+ cities where the services would be launched initially.
