RJio has 1.5 million test users, using 26GB per month

In July, we reported that Reliance Jio had over 1.5 million test users on its network. It claimed that the average monthly data consumption on its network was over 26GB per user per month, while the average voice usage per month was over 355 minutes per user. The numbers are up significantly from April when the company claimed 500,000 users on the network, with an average data consumption of over 18GB per month.

In June, Reliance Jio’s official website went live with an option to “register interest”. A month before that, Jio had opened its operations to the public on an invite-only basis through its employees. The company had missed the commercial operation launch of its telecom network in March this year. Anshuman Thakur, Reliance Jio’s head of strategy and planning, said in a PTI report that the delay was due to impending network optimization operations as they aim to launch 4G services pan-India.
