Introduction to Reliance Jio
Who isn’t aware of Jio yet? Well, only the ones who are living under the rocks. Reliance Jio has won millions of customers in a very short span of time because of its unbelievable and very cost-effective rates. Needless to mention, the services also go parallel with the rates.
Through its Welcome offer and Happy New Year offer, Reliance Jio gifted free internet, calling and messaging facilities to the entire country.
All you had to do was, get a barcode from the My Jio app and get it scanned from the officials at the Reliance stores with proper documents. It literally made India addicted to the internet as it provided 1 GB 4g data every day.
But of course, later on, the company introduced it’s first ever paid scheme, that is, ‘Jio Dhan Dhana Dhan offer’.
Jiofi Routers for Internet transmission
Other than providing internet from its sim cards, Reliance Jio has launched JioFi which is a personal hotspot. It is a pocket-friendly device and can be carried anywhere. It is a small but an effective internet powerhouse.
The main reason for launching JioFi was that Jio sim cards were only supported by 4g smartphones. So, by using JioFi, you can get access to 4g data on any smartphone, be it 2g, 3g or 4g. Not only this. It can also be connected to PCs and laptops.
It’s perfect for the digital world which lives on the internet. There have also been complaints against JioFi regarding bad network issues and slow internet speed but these problems are of course temporary and they happen mainly because millions of people in India use Jio connections simultaneously.
Those small bugs and issues can also be fixed by upgrading Jiofi firmware.
