The missed era is no more to be seen anywhere!
The launch of the disruptive new comer, jio networking services, in India by Reliance industries limited saw a new face in the USAGE OF INTERNET section. Mukesh Ambani, the person behind the scenes, launched jio in the early September 2016 and the drastic change immediately kicked off the grounds with a super start. According to statistics, there has been a relatively huge hike when we talk about the count of internet users in India. In 2015, the google showed up a result stating 27 % of the total population in India used the internet services. However, a recent analysis shows that the percentage of the population using the internet services has immensely risen to almost 35 % in the year 2016, thereby showing a tremendous increase of 8 % in a small span of one year.
Until date, even the fastest smart phone in India supported only the 4 G network communications. 4 G meaning FOURTH GENERATION was incorporated with a connection sped of at least 100 Mega Bit per second and more stationary uses as in mobile hotspots. Nevertheless, when the mobile phone displays 4G on the top right corner or left corner, it does not really mean it. The telecom services are pushing up really hard for their 4 G services and at times drop down the 4 G networking services to 3 G and sometimes in the worst situations even to 2 G, when there is no network coverage, which is something a customer would not prefer to experience while usage. But Reliance Jio is the first India’s LTE only network (Long Term Evolution) which is not technically a technology but it is more seen like a path to achieve 4 G connectivity spends and standards. Despite inconsistent speeds depending on location and network signals, the difference between 3 G and 4 G is immediately and clearly noticeable. The users did not have to worry much about their network dropping down to 2 G or 3 G connections. Open hotspots were noticed everywhere. This is one of the greatest impacts that jio has on the nation as it gained the hearts and trust of its customers.
The reliance Jio networking makes voice calls through Voice over LTE ( VoLTE ). Though this feature being relatively new in the country, it promises excellent audio quality which will be far better than our normal voice calls and to everyone’s surprise it was actually able to achieve its goals. Now, there is no more restriction on the call duration which being one of the main factor for people opting for these services. To add to all this, the 1 GB data provided per day has caused all the change. Every single person has started to make proper use of the mobile data and the unlimited call package. Now, there is easy access to the internet without being concerned about the high rates imposed on the data plans. On top of all this, the speed of the internet and the connectivity issues are perfectly alright. The use of Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, twitter has greatly increased without any witch.
Another tremendous effect which jio had on our nation was, the other network providers have seen huge losses. Airtel has made great looses for the first time in 6 – 7 years. Neither their 4G girl nor their past records could come to any rescue. Telecom sectors are looking towards consolidation with smaller operators selling their spectrum or getting merged and forming collaboration with market leaders. Data prices have come down quiet heavily by almost 70 %. Prior to Jio, the same plan in airtel, vodafone or idea was a way too costly and people developed the habit of using mobile data cautiously. The networking services have come up with many innovative and beneficiary offers like adding up the unused data in the next months limit, three months package for 399 INR which offers unlimited calls and 1GB data per day and many more which is a good sign to be considered.
