Reliance Jio To Offer High-Speed Data and Voice Services Using 4G Technology

According to Reliance Jio spokesman, Reliance Jio Infocomm is building “futuristic high-capacity infrastructure to handle huge demand for data and voice” using fourth-generation technology. In addition to high-speed data, the 4G network will provide voice services as well.

Since the company owns spectrum in the 2300 Mhz and 1800 Mhz bands (which are non-standard and more suitable to carry data), the cost to roll out the services will go up by 35-40%, limiting the ability to offer low-cost voice services that account for 80% of the industry’s revenue.

Analysts at HSBC says, the situation could get grim if Reliance Jio is driven to sell customised phones amid weak mass-market availability of devices that work on 4G technologies.
