Reliance Jio’s employees have consumed over 18 GB of data in a month. The Mukesh Ambani-led telecom operator launched full scale 4G service offerings for the Reliance Industries group employees, partners, vendors and associates on a trial basis on 28th December 2015.

To put things into perspective the average data consumed on 3G networks in India is 753 MB while the national average of data consumed (both 3G and 2G) is 150 MB, as indicated by this Business Standard report.

So far, 500,000 employees have been onboarded on the network, the company added. Reliance Jio missed commercial operation launch in March this year. Anshuman Thakur, Reliance Jio’s head of strategy and planning, parried queries on the delay of the commercial launch. “As it needs a lot of optimisation, which will lead to some disturbances in services, we want to ensure that once commercially launched the service is seamless. In fact the only delay is network optimisation. Also, we want to have a larger user-base of say a couple of millions at least (up from the present 0.5 million) to do the rollout,” he was quoted in this PTI report. ‘

Spectrum sharing with Reliance Communications

Last week, the Department of Telecommunication approved a spectrum sharing deal between Reliance Jio and Anil Ambani owned Reliance Communications to share their 800MHz spectrum band across 9 Circles.

The arrangements were also subjected to liberalization of RCOM spectrum in the 800 MHz band for which it has reportedly paid Rs 5383.84 crore as a liberalization fee to the telecom department under the same band in 16 circles in January. RCOM was initially looking to liberalize its 800Mhz band in 20 circles.
